If you can't eat them, oxidize them! In contrast to currently employed alginate-metabolizing microbial approaches, we extract energy and valuable chemicals from inedible macroalgae through a fuel cell system that exploits the direct electrochemical oxidation of alginate by gold nanoparticle-decorated functionalized carbon nanotubes without any external input of energy.
