Capacitive bioanodes for electricity production in Microbial Fuel Cells
Microbial Fuel Cells allow production of electricity and clean water. Electroactive microorganisms feed on organic material in wastewater and deliver electrons for electricity production. The use of activated carbon as electron acceptor allows for charge storage in the capacitive material. The electricity is produced by discharging the capacitive activated carbon. The charge storage allows for decoupling of electricity production and wastewater treatment, which allows for optimization of both steps. The research focuses on developing this concept towards application of the technology.
