It was a unique experience to chair a poster corner session and discussions at the huge Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) 2023 congress in Dublin last week.
We are happy to announce a new paper in Chemical Engineering Journal. In collaboration with Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology and Brno University of Technology, we have created and tested 96-well bioelectrochemical system.
We are having very busy summertime! In July LMES has grown to seven members by hosting our international colleagues and students. Dr. Fatma Yalcinkaya, a group lead in Technical University of Liberec has joined us to work towards novel membranes for MFCs, while two graduate students will get their hands on MFC science: Omar Ahmed from Ondokuz Mayıs University (Samsun, TR) and Antonio Santoro (University of Ferrara, IT).
We are glad to announce that our long-term work on improving the MFC lifetime and performance by casting ceramic membrane composite with recycled polypropylene has been published in Chemical Engineering Journal. Ceramics are great membranes but sometimes require surface engineering to inhibit the biofouling and other negative phenomenons in MFCs. Dowiedz się więcej…
Biogas is still underused resource which could boost our road to sustainability. It requires removal of impurities which either decrease its caloric value or could be harmful for the distribution and combustion systems. Greg’s new chapter is entirely sacrificed to the upcoming, electrochemical methods of biogas upgrading:
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!
