A comprehensive review of microbial electrochemical systems as a platform technology. The chemistry of Cr VI adsorption on to poly p -phenylenediamine adsorbent. This phenomenon, known as hydrogen recycling Ruiz et al. Comparison of electrofuel processes with cellulosic biofuels and other methods of transforming raw materials into fuels, considering the whole life cycle, are also necessary to identify the most sustainable and practical paths forward. Continuous electricity generation from domestic wastewater and organic substrates in a flat plate microbial fuel cell.

However, for a MEC performing within the operational parameters discussed above, the revenues derived from the selling of hydrogen and the reduction in energy consumption would not be enough to offset the capital costs. Finally, on its road to practical application, not only would MEC technology need to overcome these economic and technological barriers, but it would also need to compete with other energy-producing technologies.

The growing rates of municipal water and wastewater treatment markets in Europe offer excellent bioelectrochemicap prospects and it is expected that the first generation of MECs could be ready within 1—4 years.

Introduction Domestic wastewater dWW often consist of a complex mixture of organics that must be removed before discharge into the environment.

McGraw Hill Pilotscale studies investigating each of the scale-up factors will help move this technology towards commercialization.

All these factors point to an exciting and intellectually stimulating atmosphere in this field of research in the near future. Because large scale MEC reactors would need to achieve at least similar performance as bench-scale reactors Pant et al.


Anode microbial communities produced by changing from microbial fuel cell to microbial electrolysis cell operation using two different wastewaters.

Scale-up is a major issue and studies to date have shown significant hurdles in achieving the performance at the pilot scale [ 6 ]. Accelerated reduction of chlorinated nitroaromatic antibiotic chloramphenicol by biocathode. Water Sci Technol 78 6: De la Rubia, M.
