The Bioelectrochemically Assisted Electrodialysis

The microbial electrolysis cells are innovative technologies that utilize “electroactive microorganisms” as biocatalysts into an electrochemical device; these electroactive microorganisms can exchange electrons with a conductive material through the external electron transfer mechanism, using the conductive material as electron donor or acceptor. The current generation from a microorganism’s metabolism was firstly reported in 1911 by M.C. Potter in his scientific communication letter “Electrical Effects Accompanying the Decomposition of Organic Compounds”1, where he stated that: The results in electrophysiology have familiarised...
