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!
Greg has just gave a talk in Switzerland at Microbial, Enzymatic & Bio-Photovoltaic Electrochemical Reactors Symposium. He talked about electrochemical way to control the formation of electroactive biofilm, its microarchitecture and properties.
The MEEP 2019 in Lucerne was full of great talks and posters and offered ideal conditions for networking. We have discussed various aspects of bioelectrochemical systems such as bioelectrochemical synthesis, materials science, electromicrobiology and pilot scale studies.

Last Friday, we were hosting Dr. Łukasz Szydłowski, who gave a talk about his research in Okinawa Institute of Research and Technology (Japan). In this short stay we were also able to introduce Łukasz to some best Landmarks in Wrocław.
It was an interesting talk and great conversations. We’re looking forward for the future collaboration!
We have just collected the sludge samples from the waste water treatment plant in Ścinawka Dolna. Natalia was very busy last days by turning this sludge into electric power.
Many thanks to the director of the plant, Mr. Marcin Balcerzak for his open approach and help!
