IBERIMET to boost excellence on MET

 

The main Spanish groups that hold the leadership in the field of microbial electrochemical technologies have created IBERIMET, the National Network of Microbial Electrochemical Technologies. The aim of IBERIMET is to set-up a work group with all the national active groups in the field. From the very beginning (2003) Spanish researchers showed interest in playing an important role in this new-born discipline. After one decade, Spain is the European country with the largest number of researchers in the field, and coordinating H2020 projects MET-based.

Bioelectrogenesis

The concept of renewable sources of energy can be altered by the recent and exciting finding called bioelectrogenesis, a process from which bacteria can directly transfer electrons to solid conductive surfaces as graphite, so clean electricity can be harvested.


Our research is mainly focused on investigating and developing bioelectrogenic devices, with the aim of giving insights into the interface  bacteria-electrode, but also with a strong applied component. We truly believe that investing time in studying the basic aspects of this novel technology will accelerate its development.
