Microbial Fuel Cells for Environmental and Energy Sustainability: Combining Electrochemistry with Bioprocess presents a comprehensive discussion and analysis of the design, operation, and application of microbial fuel cells. With an emphasis on optimizing performance and applications, the book explores the latest developments, from electrodes and membranes to genetic engineering and artificial intelligence.

Divided into six parts, Part 1 provides a systematic introduction to microbial fuel cells. Part 2 examines the design and construction of microbial fuel cells, including the design and modification of anodes, cathodes, proton exchange membranes, and the use of 3D printing technology. Part three explores the use of different microorganisms for power generation, such as electrochemically active strains, microalgae-assisted microbial fuel cells, and genetic engineering strategies to enhance power generation. Part 4 discusses the operation and control of microbial fuel cells, including environmental conditions, electron mediators, and intelligent control. Part 5 reviews the various applications of microbial fuel cells, such as wastewater treatment, valorization of lignocellulosic biomass wastes, bioremediation, biosensors, and the production of bioproducts. Finally, Part 6 considers the challenges and prospects of microbial fuel cells, including new technologies, applications, and scale-up.

Microbial Fuel Cells for Environmental and Energy Sustainability: Combining Electrochemistry with Bioprocess is an invaluable reference for students and researchers in the fields of chemical, biological, and environmental engineering involved in renewable energy generation, bioremediation, wastewater treatment and resource recovery, or other microbial fuel cell applications.
