Our project aims to design, construct and operate a microbial electrochemical fluidized bed reactor ME-FBR platform to explore different biotechnological applications with an environmental focus. We have designed a work plan to accelerate the screening of the technology with a sole purpose: to identify potential environmental cases that can lead to successful projects beyond MET-FLUID.
We are exploring both anodic and cathodic electrochemical performance by using fluidlike electrodes. In this context we are investigating the use of new materials, and microorganism with novel capacities for removing pollutants or synthesize high valuable products.
We expect to develop a bioelectrochemical platform for finding new environmental application in the field of bioremediation of bioelectrosynthesis at proof-of-concept level. At the end of the Project the TRL c) should be high enough to suggest a further development.
