Steering biogas performance by implementation of bioelectrochemical cell (BEC) technology

Prokhorova, Anna

A new concept for integrating conventional anaerobic digester (AD) with bioelectrochemical cell (BEC) technology was investigated in the current study. The BEC technology can convert energy stored in organic matter directly into bioelectricity. Coupling AD with BEC could be a profitable approach that could lead to overcoming limiting factors in AD, such as hydrogen partial pressure and accumulation of volatile fatty acids, inhibiting the methanogenesis.
