A two-chambered microbial fuel cell (MFC) with potassium ferricyanide as its electron acceptor was utilized to degrade excess sewage sludge and to generate electricity. Stable electrical power was produced continuously during operation for 250 h. Total chemical oxygen demand (TCOD) of sludge was reduced by 46.4% when an initial TCOD was 10,850 mg/l. The MFC(More)
Sustainable electricity was generated from glucose in up-flow air-cathode microbial fuel cells (MFCs) with carbon cloth cathode and carbon granular anode. Plastic sieves rather than membrane were used to separate the anode and cathode. Based on 1g/l glucose as substrate, a maximum volumetric power density of 25+/-4 W/m(3) (89 A/m(3)) was obtained for the(More)
A novel surface modification strategy was developed using 3-aminopropytriethoxysilane and 4-formylphenylboronic acid successively as covalent linkers between COF-5 and the porous α-Al2O3 ceramic support, and then the COF-5 membrane was further grown successfully on the modified α-Al2O3 support by using a microwave irradiation method.
A survey and review of recent patents on electrochemical methods for corrosion monitoring from 1999 to 2009 are presented in this paper. The patents were classified into 4 groups according to different electrochemical theories, which are potential, polarization, electrochemical impedance and electrochemical noise. A future outlook of the development on new(More)
Forward osmosis (FO) represents a new promising membrane technology for liquid separation driven by the osmotic pressure of aqueous solution. Organic polymeric FO membranes are subject to severe internal concentration polarization due to asymmetric membrane structure, and low stability due to inherent chemical composition. To address these limitations, this(More)
