The state-of-the-art for all light-harvesting BESs is discussed and a novel classification system is presented to illustrate how BPVs integrate into the broad fields of BES and photovoltaic research.
Porous ceramic anode materials for photo-microbial fuel cells
This study focuses on porous ceramics as a promising new type of anode material for photo-microbial fuel cells (p-MFCs). The anodes were made from titanium dioxide and chemical vapour deposition was…

Assessment of global sources and pathways of mercury in the context of human health is important for being able to monitor the effects from implementation of the Minamata Convention targets, although new research is needed on the improvement of emission inventory data, the chemical and physical behaviour of Mercury in the atmosphere and on the subsequent effects on the environment, human health.

Comparisons between BPV performances and material characteristics revealed that surface roughness and surface energy, particularly the ratio of non-polar to polar interactions (the CQ ratio), may be more important than available surface area in determining biocompatibility and maximum power outputs in microbial electrochemical systems.
Trapping of redox-mediators at the surface of Chlorella vulgaris leads to error in measurements of cell reducing power.

The range of anode and cathode materials currently used in p-MFCs are reviewed and the first results using porous ceramic anodes in a mediator-free p- MFC are presented.
Correlation between Coke Type, Microstructure and Anodic Reaction Overpotential in Aluminium Electrolysis
20 Although the anode process during aluminium electrolysis has a substantial 21 overpotential that increases the energy demand and production cost of aluminium, 22 properties of the coke that can…
