The exciting discovery that dechlorinating bacteria can use polarized graphite cathodes as direct electron donors in the reductive dechlorination has prompted investigations on the development of novel bioelectrochemical remediation approaches. In this work, we investigated the performance of a bioelectrochemical reactor for the treatment of trichloroethene (TCE). The reactor was continuously operated for about 570 days, at different potentiostatically controlled cathode potentials, ranging… CONTINUE READING
