A modeling platform for microbial electrodes based on electroactive microbial biofilms performing direct electron transfer (DET) is presented. Microbial catabolism and anabolism were coupled with intracellular and extracellular electron transfer, leading to biofilm growth and current generation. The model includes homogeneous electron transfer from cells to a conductive biofilm component, biofilm matrix conduction, and heterogeneous electron transfer to the electrode. Model results for… CONTINUE READING
