Effective wastewater treatment using microbial fuel cells (MFCs) will require a better understanding of how operational parameters and solution chemistry affect treatment efficiency, but few studies… Expand
Electroactive biofilms: Current status and future research needs
Electroactive biofilms (EABFs) generated by electrochemically active microorganisms have many potential applications in bioenergy and chemicals production. Biofilm electroactivity can have a… Expand
Acid hydrolysis of corn stover for biohydrogen production using Thermoanaerobacterium thermosaccharolyticum W16
Abstract Lignocellulosic biomass, if properly hydrolyzed, can be an ideal feedstock for fermentative hydrogen production. This work considered the pretreatment of corn stover (CS) using a dilute acid… Expand
Treatment of carbon fiber brush anodes for improving power generation in air-cathode microbial fuel cells
Abstract Carbon brush electrodes have been used to provide high surface areas for bacterial growth and high power densities in microbial fuel cells (MFCs). A high-temperature ammonia gas treatment… Expand
Accelerated start-up of two-chambered microbial fuel cells: Effect of anodic positive poised potential
Abstract The acclimation of anode-respiring bacteria (ARB) played a key role in starting up a microbial fuel cell (MFC). Conventionally, spontaneous colonization was employed in this process.… Expand
