IBERIMET meeting in Alcalá

IBERIMET, the national network of excellence that brings together the main Spanish groups in the field of Microbial Electrochemical Technologies (MET), held its first workshop at the University of Alcalá, Spain, early December. Abraham Esteve's Bioe-, coordinator of the project, was in charge of organizing the meeting.

LAST PAPERS

A new concept on EET

January 2017: we explore a new concept in bacteria-electrode interaction based on the use of fluid-like electrodes and planktonic living cells. For the first time we show that living in a bioifilm is not a strict requirement for Geobacter sulfurreducens to exchange electrons with an electrode.

The planktonic relationship between fluid-like electrodes and bacteria: wiring in motion. ChemSusChem

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.
