Integrated Microbial Fuel Cells for Wastewater Treatment Book Review:

Current wastewater treatment technologies are not sustainable simply due to their high operational costs and process inefficiency. Integrated Microbial Fuel Cells for Wastewater Treatment is intended for professionals who are searching for an innovative method to improve the efficiencies of wastewater treatment processes by exploiting the potential of Microbial Fuel Cells (MFCs) technology. The book is broadly divided into four sections. It begins with an overview of the "state of the art" bioelectrochemical systems (BESs) as well as the fundamentals of MFC technology and its potential to enhance wastewater treatment efficiencies and reduce electricity generation cost. In section two, discusses the integration, installation, and optimization of MFC into conventional wastewater treatment processes such as activated sludge process, lagoons, constructed wetlands, and membrane bioreactors. Section three outlines integrations of MFCs into other wastewater processes. The final section provides explorative studies of MFC integrated systems for large scale wastewater treatment and the challenges which are inherent in the upscaling process. Clearly describes the latest techniques for integrating MFC into traditional wastewater treatment processes such as activated sludge process, lagoons, constructed wetlands, and membrane bioreactors Discusses the fundamentals of bioelectrochemical systems for degrading the contaminants from the municipal and industrial wastewater Covers methods for the optimization of integrated systems

Integrating Microbial Fuel Cells Into Rotating Biological Contactor Systems for Simultaneous Wastewater Treatment and Electricity Generation Book Review:

The simultaneous treatment of wastewater and generation of electricity using single-chamber, two-chamber, and stacked-cell microbial fuel cell configurations are well-documented in the literature. Recently, several studies have demonstrated the possibility of integrating microbial fuel cells into existing wastewater treatment configurations (e.g. sequencing batch reactors and membrane systems) for simultaneous removal of carbonaceous and nitrogenous pollutants and electricity production from wastewater. Rotating biological contactors are important biofilm processes used for organic carbon removal and nitrification that microbial fuel cells could be integrated into. The objective of this study was to test the possibility of integrating microbial fuel cells into rotating biological contactor systems for COD removal and nitrification and electricity generation from wastewater. To achieve this objective, two three-stage rotating biological contactor units (RBC and RBC-MFC) were constructed. The RBC-MFC was operated in a closed-circuit mode while the RBC was used as a control (open circuit). The anode was made of carbon fiber brush that extended along the bottom of each stage. Each stage had a horizontal graphite shaft on which eight carbon felt cathode discs were mounted. Six experimental runs were conducted to test the effect of the hydraulic loading rate, COD/N ratio and step-feeding conditions on organic carbon and ammonia removal on both units. Although the system needs to be optimized to generate higher voltage outputs and current densities, this study showed the possibility of integrating microbial fuel cells into rotating biological contactor systems with efficient removal of both COD and ammonia.

Bioelectrochemical Systems Book Review:

In the context of wastewater treatment, Bioelectrochemical Systems (BESs) have gained considerable interest in the past few years, and several BES processes are on the brink of application to this area. This book, written by a large number of world experts in the different sub-topics, describes the different aspects and processes relevant to their development. Bioelectrochemical Systems (BESs) use micro-organisms to catalyze an oxidation and/or reduction reaction at an anodic and cathodic electrode respectively. Briefly, at an anode oxidation of organic and inorganic electron donors can occur. Prime examples of such electron donors are waste organics and sulfides. At the cathode, an electron acceptor such as oxygen or nitrate can be reduced. The anode and the cathode are connected through an electrical circuit. If electrical power is harvested from this circuit, the system is called a Microbial Fuel Cell; if electrical power is invested, the system is called a Microbial Electrolysis Cell. The overall framework of bio-energy and bio-fuels is discussed. A number of chapters discuss the basics - microbiology, microbial ecology, electrochemistry, technology and materials development. The book continues by highlighting the plurality of processes based on BES technology already in existence, going from wastewater based reactors to sediment based bio-batteries. The integration of BESs into existing water or process lines is discussed. Finally, an outlook is provided of how BES will fit within the emerging biorefinery area.

Advances in Biofuels Book Review:

​Biofuels will play a key role in the 21st century as the world faces two critical problems; volatile fuel prices and global climatic changes. Both of these are linked to the overdependence on the fossil fuels: petroleum, natural gas, and coal. Transportation is almost totally dependent on petroleum based fuels such as gasoline, diesel fuel, liquefied petroleum gas, and on natural gas. Despite a significant amount of research into biofuels, the field has not been able to replace fossil fuels. Recent advances will change this scenario. Extracting fuel from biomass has been very expensive (both monetarily and in land usage), time consuming, unusable byproducts, etc. Technology to obtain liquid fuel from non-fossil sources must be improved to be faster, more efficient and more cost-effective. This book will cover the current technology used for a variety of plant types and explore shortcomings with each.

Treatment of Sewage Domestic Wastewater Or Municipal Wastewater and Electricity Production by Integrating Constructed Wetland with Microbial Fuel Cell Book Review:

Proper treatment of wastewater is important to human health and societal development, and the commonly applied wastewater treatment technologies based on aerobic treatment have a significant demand for energy. Thus, new treatment technologies with low energy consumption and possible recovery of valuable resources (e.g., energy and water) from wastewater become of strong interest. Among the newly developed concepts, microbial fuel cells (MFCs) integrated with constructed wetland appear to be very attractive because of direct electricity generation from organic compounds and treatment of wastewater. Constructed wetland coupled with microbial fuel cell (CW-MFC) is an emerging technology in recent years and has attracted a lot of attention from researchers in the fields of wastewater treatment and bioenergy production. CW-MFC is a promising technology in the fields of wastewater treatment and bioenergy. However, at current power levels, the advantage of combining the two is mainly because of the enhancement of wastewater treatment in anaerobic zones within the wetland. New operational strategies need to be explored to increase and utilize electricity output.
