Microbial Fuel Cell

In this research, the technology of microbial fuel cell is used to realize the zero energy consumption and zero carbon emissions in the process of wastewater treatment. The anode domesticated microbes, who possess the ability of electron transfer , was used as catalyst to transform the chemical energy of the pollutants to electrical energy, and in situ as a power source for the feed water pump . This study intends to use our newly developed low-cost and high-performance activated carbon roll air-cathode (cost $1600 by the traditional material droped to as low as $30), at the same time, overcome the bottleneck of cost and performance, is easy to produce and amplify.
