We’re happy to announce, that LMES is a part of successful COST action proposal “Protection, Resilience, Rehabilitation of damaged environment”. Dr Grzegorz Pasternak will act as an MC member and Ms. Karolina Kordek from Prof. Piotr Rutkowski’s group will be an MC substitute member.
The action spans several researchers from the field of bioelectrochemical systems. It consists of 9 EU countries, as well as collaborating groups from outside of the EU.
Surface active agents may play a crucial role in bioelectrochemical systems – they may boost their power and interact with bacteria. Check out our first review in this upcoming field of bioelectrochemistry. A great collaboration with Miriam Rosenbaum from Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology and Theresia Desy Askitosari from University of Surabaya.

Our new paper with Bristol BioEnergy Centre has just been released in Scientific Reports. We were investigating the suscpectibility of important infectious disease carrier – Hepatitis B to removal in microbial fuel cell system. It appeared, that both surface and core proteins of the viral structure can be destroyed in bioelectrochemical systems!
This month, we will be present at XV Polish Membrane Society Summer School. Greg will give a lecture for the School participatns and Natalia will show her first results on ceramic membranes for microbial fuel cells technology. Click here to learn more about the event and programme.
