WG2 – Bio-Electrochemical Systems to reduce the environmental impact of pollutants and bioresource valorisation
Bio-Electrochemical Systems to reduce the environmental impact of pollutants
The WG2 deals with the biodegradation of waste and wastewater using Bioelectrochemical Systems (BESs) technology. Furthermore, WG2 is related to surface science of BESs. This technology is able to result in environmental sustainability.
The WG2 is related to bioremediation and surface science using BESs, leading to environmental sustainability. WG2 thematic areas are electro remediation, bioremediation, bioprocesses, electromagnetic interactions on biofilm, BESs and electrodes materials, bioresource valorization, electro-fermentation, biological interaction, water valorization for waste and wastewater.
aims or objectives
- Waste and wastewater biodegradation and added-value products formation
- Microbial communities to degrade hazardous contaminants
- Functionalized electrodes in BESs and electro-fermentation
- Surface science
