Investigators from CSIR Report New Data on Bioresource Technology (Microbial catalyzed electrochemical systems: A bio-factory with multi-facet applications)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Energy Weekly News -- Data detailed on Bioresource Technology have been presented. According to news originating from Andhra Pradesh, India, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Microbial catalyzed electrochemical systems (MCES) have been intensively pursued in both basic and applied research as a futuristic and sustainable platform specifically in harnessing energy and generating value added bio-products. MCES have documented multiple/diverse applications which include microbial fuel cell (for harnessing bioelectricity), bioelectrochemical treatment system (waste remediation), bio-electrochemical system (bio-electrosynthesis of various value added products) and microbial electrolytic cell (H2 production at lower applied potential)."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from CSIR, "Microorganisms function as biocatalyst in these fuel cell systems and the resulting electron flux from metabolism plays pivotal role in bio-electrogenesis. Exo-electron transfer machineries and strategies that regulate metabolic flux towards exo-electron transport were delineated."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "This review addresses the contemporary progress and advances made in MCES, focusing on its application towards value addition and waste remediation."
