Title: Bacterial wiring for energy conversion and bioremediation

Duration: 2009 - 2013

Research groups: Bioe


The aim of the project is to develop a new paradigm for the simultaneous cogeneration of energy and bioremediation using electro-active bacteria. A new nano-structured transducer that efficiently connects to these bacteria will be developed, aimed at the production of devices with higher performance across a range of applications including microbial fuel cells, whole cell biosensors and bioreactors.


This project has received funding from the European Union’s FP7 Programme under Grant Agreement no 229337.
