Summary

This book encompasses the most updated and recent account of research and implementation of Microbial Electrochemical Technologies (METs) from pioneers and experienced researchers in the field who have been working in the interface of electrochemistry and microbiology/biotechnology for many years. It provides a holistic view of the METs, detailing the functional mechanisms, operational configurations, influencing factors governing the reaction process and integration strategies. The book not only provides historical perspective of the technology and its evolution over the years but also most recent examples of up-scaling and near future commercialization making it a must-read for researchers, students, industry practitioners and science enthusiasts.

Key Features:

  • Introduces novel technologies that can impact the future infrastructure at the water-energy nexus.
  • Outlines methodologies development and application of microbial electrochemical technologies and details out the illustrations of microbial and electrochemical concepts.
  • Reviews applications across a wide variety of scales, from power generation in the laboratory to approaches.
  • Discusses techniques such as molecular biology and mathematical modeling; the future development of this promising technology; and the role of the system components for the implementation of bioelectrochemical technologies for practical utility.
  • Explores key challenges for implementing these systems and compares them to similar renewable energy technologies, including their efficiency, scalability, system lifetimes, and reliability.
