microbial fuel cells

Oxygen biocathode based on laccase Pleurotus ostreatus HK-35 for biofuel cell

The main reasons that make mankind look for new sources of energy are decreasing dependence on fossil fuels and reducing pollution. Wastewater treatment with the help of microbial fuel cells is an area where these two goals can be combined. Microbial fuel cells, in which microorganisms catalyze the oxidation of organic substances, represent a new and promising alternative for electricity generation. The creation of an efficient cathode in such systems is the important problem. It is evident that in these applications an oxygen (air) electrode is a promising cathode.

Conversion of wastes into electrical energy troungh microbial electrochemical technologies

УДК 541.135


The wastewater is potential processing facilities, from which you can receive bioenergy and biochemicals. Recovery of energy and valuable products can partially compensate for the cost of wastewater treatment and reduce some of the dependence on fossil fuels

Book review: Mahendra Rai, Anatoly Reshetilov, Yulia Plekhanova, Avinash P. Ingle, editors. Macro, Micro, and Nano-Biosensors: Potential Applications and Possible Limitation

The main idea of the book is that, depending on the addressed problem, different approaches are to be used; macro constructs are to be worked with in some cases, micro and nano in others. Biosensors considered are electrochemical, optical, atomic force microscopy-based; biofuel cells that develop the idea of electrochemical biosensors are intended for a double purpose of cleaning up the environment and working out electrical energy.
