Title: Meeting Microbial Electrochemistry for water

Duration: 2014 - 2017

Research groups: Bioe


MEET-ME4WATER focuses on overcoming the barriers to scale-up and demonstration of microbial electrochemical technologies (METs) and bring them faster to market. These technologies treat wastewater and, at the same time, produce value added products (chemicals, H2, and/or desalinate water at zero energy cost simultaneously) whilst producing energy. METs have a well explored innovation potential for sustainable development of wastewater treatment systems. Further work is needed to fully control the engineering and biotechnological aspects of these systems at larger scale.
