Microbial electrosynthesis (MES) make use of the endogenous property of some microorganisms to interact with electrodes. It can be defined as an electricity-driven or electricity-influenced microbial product synthesis. The project covers the investigation, evaluation and the extension of microbial electrosynthesis for biotechnological production.
The main aims of the project are:
Immobilization of electroactive bacteria and monitoring of the subsequent biofilm formation on electrode surfaces are one of the major challenges towards industrial application of MES. In this project, a flow cell for the simultaneous detection of electroactive biofilms with impedance spectroscopy and confocal laser scanning microscopy was developed.back
