Bioelectrochemical system (BES) was operated using the enzyme formate dehydrogenase as catalyst at cathode in its free form for the reduction of CO2 into formic acid. Electrosynthesis of formic acid was higher at an operational voltage of -1V vs. Ag/AgCl (9.37mgL(-1) CO2) compared to operation at -0.8V (4.73mgL(-1) CO2) which was strongly supported by the reduction catalytic current. Voltammograms also depicted a reversible redox peak throughout operation at -1V, indicating NAD(+) recycling for… CONTINUE READING
