Abstract

The main aim of this work was to increase the efficiency of the ceramic based MFCs by compacting the design and exploring the ceramic support as the building block for small scale modular multi-unit systems. The improved energy density would then allow to utilise the energy locked in the feedstock (waste) more efficiently, make MFCs more applicable in industrial and municipal wastewater treatment facilities, and scale-up-ready for real world application.
