Researchers at Arizona State University Have Reported New Data on Biotechnology (On the importance of identifying, characterizing, and predicting fundamental phenomena towards microbial electrochemistry applications)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- Researchers detail new data in Technology. According to news reporting originating from Tempe, Arizona, by NewsRx editors, the research stated, "The development of microbial electrochemistry research toward technological applications has increased significantly in the past years, leading to many process configurations. This short review focuses on the need to identify and characterize the fundamental phenomena that control the performance of microbial electrochemical cells (MXCs)."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Arizona State University, "Specifically, it discusses the importance of recent efforts to discover and characterize novel microorganisms for MXC applications, as well as recent developments to understand transport limitations in MXCs. As we increase our understanding of how MXCs operate, it is imperative to continue modeling efforts in order to effectively predict their performance, design efficient MXC technologies, and implement them commercially."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Thus, the success of MXC technologies largely depends on the path of identifying, understanding, and predicting fundamental phenomena that determine MXC performance."
