Bacterial cellulose (BC) was applied to an electrolyte membrane in fuel cells. Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) gel was fixed in the BC film to enhance the ionic conductivity of the membrane. The mechanical and electrochemical properties of CMC gel /BC composite (CMCBC) film was estimated. The ionic conductivity of CMCBC film was significantly higher than that of original BC film.
