Exploring the capabilities of microbial electrosynthesis during treatment of low-strength wastewater
Paper i proceeding, 2013

Acetate was produced in the biocathode of a dual-chamber reactor at ambient temperatures (21 oC), with the concurrent treatment of low-strength synthetic wastewater in the anode. Cyclic voltammograms (CVs) showed considerable differences between the different electrode conditions and revealed redox peaks that could be proved beneficial during the microbial electrosynthesis of commodity chemicals.
