Microbial electrosynthesis (mes) processes are suitable for sustainable conversion of stillage streams from industrial systems into added value materials , , , thus, the stillage streams from biorefineries can be a substrate for mes to produce added value products. The electrosynthesis company is an electrochemistry lab in buffalo, ny designed for electrochemical research and development. Microbial electrochemical technology (met) (bioelectrochemical system or mxcs, microbial fuel cell, microbial electrolysis cell, microbial desalination cell, microbial electrosynthesis) fermentation, anaerobic digestion, and other bioenergy systems for hydrogen, biogas, drop-in fuels, and value-added chemicals production.
Full-text paper (pdf): microbial electrosynthesis - revisiting the electrical route for microbial production. Microbial electrosynthesis differs significantly from photosynthesis in that carbon and electron flow is directed primarily to the formation of extracellular products, rather than biomass biomass typically requires extensive additional processing for chemical or fuel production.
Bes has two categories according to the direction of electron flow, microbial fuel cells (mfc, electricity production), and microbial electrosynthesis (mes, electricity consumption) a microbial fuel cell uses extracellular electron transfer to an electrode originating from organic compounds consumed by microorganisms.
Microbial and electrochemical carbon capture, utilization, and storage bioenergy, biofuels, and bioproducts generation from biomass and wastewater microbial electrochemical technology (met) (bioelectrochemical system or mxcs, microbial fuel cell, microbial electrolysis cell, microbial desalination cell, microbial electrosynthesis.
Microbial fuel and electrolysis cells the aim of this project is the improvement of anodic consortia for wastewater treatment in a microbial fuel cell (mfc) in microbial fuels cells an anode is been used by specialized microorganisms as terminal electron acceptor of their respiratory chain. Microbial electrosynthesis is a form of microbial electrocatalysis in which electrons are supplied to living microorganisms via a cathode in an electrochemical cell by applying an electric current the electrons are then used by the microorganisms to reduce carbon dioxide to yield industrially relevant products.
Term microbial electrosynthesis was used to describe the revisiting the electrical route for microbial production microbial fuel cells and microbial electrolysis cells are well known. The electrosynthesis company is a state of the art e lectrochemistry lab custom designed for doing electrochemical research and development we currently occupy 25,000 square feet of office, laboratory, pilot plant and warehouse area.
In microbial electrosynthesis (mes), co 2 can be reduced preferably to multi-carbon chemicals by a biocathode-based process which uses electrochemically active bacteria as catalysts. A microbial fuel cell uses extracellular electron transfer to an electrode originating from organic compounds consumed by microorganisms microbial electrosynthesis uses electron transfer from an electrode to microorganisms producing reduced biochemical compounds an electrode is thus used as an electron acceptor (mfc) or an electron donor (mes.
