A consortium of research institutes and water companies will develop a new project in the field
of wastewater purification ( programme INNPACTO from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation)

Published On: March 16, 2011

This collaborative project has three objectives: to develop a new concept of sewage treatment by constructing electrogenic wetlands, to establish a bioelectrogenic anaerobic treatment for wastewater and to design a novel electrochemical bioreactor for removal of nutrients (nitrogen).

The bioelectrogenesis is a novel process by which certain bacteria can oxidize organic matter and transfer the electrons directly to a conductive solid, like graphite. In this way you can obtain and store clean energy.
