Biobased electricity in developing countries

Research project It is generally recognized that institutions such as schools in rural communities in developing countries lack access to electricity produced in cost-effective and “climate friendly” ways. Microbial fuel cells (MFC) can directly produce 100 W of elec ... Project Completion Report: WP 1 Reactor design: Three cathode types using dissolved oxygen (DOCs), ferricyanide (FeCs) and air (AiCs) were assessed to improve the reactor design. Electricity generation was evaluated by quantifying current genera ...
