Book Description :

In the context of wastewater treatment, Bioelectrochemical Systems (BESs) have gained considerable interest in the past few years, and several BES processes are on the brink of application to this area. This book, written by a large number of world experts in the different sub-topics, describes the different aspects and processes relevant to their development. Bioelectrochemical Systems (BESs) use micro-organisms to catalyze an oxidation and/or reduction reaction at an anodic and cathodic electrode respectively. Briefly, at an anode oxidation of organic and inorganic electron donors can occur. Prime examples of such electron donors are waste organics and sulfides. At the cathode, an electron acceptor such as oxygen or nitrate can be reduced. The anode and the cathode are connected through an electrical circuit. If electrical power is harvested from this circuit, the system is called a Microbial Fuel Cell; if electrical power is invested, the system is called a Microbial Electrolysis Cell. The overall framework of bio-energy and bio-fuels is discussed. A number of chapters discuss the basics - microbiology, microbial ecology, electrochemistry, technology and materials development. The book continues by highlighting the plurality of processes based on BES technology already in existence, going from wastewater based reactors to sediment based bio-batteries. The integration of BESs into existing water or process lines is discussed. Finally, an outlook is provided of how BES will fit within the emerging biorefinery area.

Book Description :

Bioelectrochemical Systems (BESs) are innovative and sustainable devices. They combine biological and electrochemical processes to engineer sensors, treat wastewater and/or produce electricity, fuel or high-value chemicals. In BESs, scientists have managed to incorporate biological catalysts, i.e. enzymes and/or microorganisms, and make them work in advanced electrochemical cells. BESs operate under mild conditions — at close to ambient temperature and pressure and at circumneutral pH — and represent a sustainable alternative to precious metal-based systems. Incorporating biological catalysts into devices while maintaining their activity and achieving electrical communication with electrode surfaces is a critical challenge when trying to advance the field of BESs. From implantable enzymatic biosensors to microbial electrosynthesis, and from laboratory-scale systems and fundamental studies to marketed devices, this book provides a comprehensive overview of recent advances related to functional electrodes for BESs. Suitable for researchers and graduate students of chemistry, biochemistry, materials science and environmental science and technology.

Book Description :

Abstract: Microbial electrochemical technologies (METs) can produce power from renewable sources or produce platform chemicals from carbon dioxide. They are developed within a highly multi-disciplinary and dynamic research environment with the aim to contribute to the global energy transition towards sustainable and renewable energy production, energy efficient remediation, and bioproduction processes. This work has carried the development of METs significantly forward on three different levels. (1) Engineering: Existing reactor designs are analyzed in detail and rated. Furthermore, a new reactor concept for the integration of METs into wastewater treatment is presented and characterized. (2) On the biological level, different inoculation strategies for the improvement of anode performance are described and (3) On the methodological level (bio-)electrochemical methods to characterize and evaluate METs are revised. 1.The highlight of this work is the development of a new reactor concept (Chapter 5) based on the findings of the analysis and rating of existing reactor designs (Chapter 2.4). The new reactor concept aims at the production of electricity for reducing the overall energy consumption of wastewater treatment and is realized as a combination of METs and membrane bioreactors. It was granted with a German and European patent and the novelty of this development is an anode which is simultaneously used as microfiltration membrane in sidestream crossflow configuration. To evaluate the feasibility of such an anode, the concept is proved using sintered porous stainless steel with G. sulfurreducens and an acetate-based synthetic medium. Resulting current densities were increased up to 4-fold compared to a standard bioelectrochemical anode setup. E.g. a stainless-steel filter of the grade 0.5 μm solely used as anode, achieves current densities of 4 A m-2 in a standard setup and > 15 A m-2 when it is simultaneously used as filtration element in crossflow configuration. To test the feasibility of this new reactor treating wastewater, it is subsequently operated as anaerobic membrane reactor (AnMBR) and the degradation of chemical oxygen demand (COD) monitored. These experiments show, that significant conversion of COD to electrical current on the filter used as anode takes place. The COD removal achieves up to 450 mg L-1 showing great potential for increasing treatment efficiencies and having a polishing effect on the effluent from an AnMBR. 2.An ...

Book Description :

Microbial electrochemical systems (MESs, also known as bioelectrochemical systems (BESs) are promising technologies for energy and products recovery coupled with wastewater treatment, and have attracted increasing attention. Many studies have been conducted to expand the application of MESs for contaminants degradation and bioremediation, and increase the efficiency of electricity production by optimizing architectural structure of MESs, developing new electrode materials, etc. However, one of the big challenges for researchers to overcome, before MESs can be used commercially, is to improve the performance of the biofilm on electrodes so that ‘electron transfer’ can be enhanced. This would lead to greater production of electricity, energy or other products. Electrochemically active microorganisms (EAMs) are a group of microorganisms which are able to release electrons from inside their cells to an electrode or accept electrons from an electron donor. The way in which EAMs do this is called ‘extracellular electron transfer’ (EET). So far, two EET mechanisms have been identified: direct electron transfer from microorganisms physically attached to an electrode, and indirect electron transfer from microorganisms that are not physically attached to an electrode. 1) Direct electron transfer between microorganisms and electrode can occur in two ways: a) when there is physical contact between outer membrane structures of the microbial cell and the surface of the electrode, b) when electrons are transferred between the microorganism and the electrode through tiny projections (called pili or nanowires) that extend from the outer membrane of the microorganism and attach themselves to the electrode. 2) Indirect transfer of electrons from the microorganisms to an electrode occurs via long-range electron shuttle compounds that may be naturally present (in wastewater, for example), or may be produced by the microorganisms themselves. The electrochemically active biofilm, which degrades contaminants and produces electricity in MESs, consists of diverse community of EAMs and other microorganisms. However, up to date only a few EAMs have been identified, and most studies on EET have focused on the two model species of Shewanella oneidensis and Geobacter sulfurreducens.
