    Abstract : Since the 1900’s it has been known that microorganisms are capable of generating electrical power through extracellular electron transfer by converting the energy found organic compounds (Potter, 1911). Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) has garnered more attention recently, and have shown promise in several applications, including wastewater treatment (Yakar et al. READ MORE

    Abstract : Better utilization of renewable sources of energy and recovery of resources from waste streams are important challenges for researchers. Bioelectrochemical systems (BESs) are new technologies which e.g. could be used to produce green energy from waste sources or store renewable electricity as chemical fuels. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sound, Light and Electricity : as applications and analysis techniques to study metabolic effect and biofilm characterization of Geobacter sulfurreducens

    Author : Adolf Krige; Paul Christakopoulos; Ulrika Rova; Ashley Franks; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MFC; Microbial fuel cell; Raman microscopy; BES; Geobacter sulfurreducens; Biokemisk processteknik; Biochemical Process Engineering;

    Abstract : ElectricityBio-electrochemical systems such as microbial fuel cells (MFCs) and microbial electrolysis cells have shown promise in wastewater treatment, bioremediation, desalination, carbon sequestration and as an alternative, renewable energy source. MFCs produces electricity via anaerobic oxidation of substrates with the subsequent extracellular electron transfer to an electrode. READ MORE
