Submersible Microbial Fuel Cell (SMFC) for electricity production from wastewater

Project Details

Description

MFC is a novel technology that can generate electricity directly from organic compounds. It has been known for several years that bacteria can be used to generate electricity that can be harvested in microbial fuel cells (MFCs). An innovative MFC for direct conversion of organic material to electricity has been invented at DTU-Environment, and the patent application was submitted in 2007. The main purpose of the present project is therefore to optimize the SMFC and to upscale it to a small pilot scale in order to demonstrate and validate the optimized SMFC technology for treatment of real wastewaters.
