9. Do you think microbes can also be used as a source of energy? If yes, how?

Answers (1)

Yes, microbes can be used as sources of energy. For example, we know that various microbes produce different types of gases as their end products. One such gas is biogas. It is a mixture of gases produced by microbes and is used as a fuel. Similarly, some anaerobic bacteria which grow on cellulosic materials produce gases like methane, hydrogen gas and CO2. Thus, we can say that microbes can be used as a source of energy.
