Electricity generation and struvite recovery from human urine using microbial fuel cells (2014)
Journal Article
You, J., Greenman, J., Melhuish, C., & Ieropoulos, I. (2016). Electricity generation and struvite recovery from human urine using microbial fuel cells. Journal of Chemical Technology and Biotechnology, 91(3), 647-654. https://doi.org/10.1002/jctb.4617

BACKGROUND: Urine is an abundant waste product which requires energy intensive treatment processes in modern wastewater treatment plants. However urine can be utilised as fertiliser in the form of struvite. Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) are a promising...

Small-scale microbial fuel cells utilising uric salts (2014)
Journal Article
Ieropoulos, I., Melhuish, C., Greenman, J., You, J., You, J., Greenman, J., …Ieropoulos, I. (2014). Small-scale microbial fuel cells utilising uric salts. Sustainable Energy Technologies and Assessments, 6, 60-63. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.seta.2014.01.005

With exhausting fossil fuels and increasing greenhouse gas emissions, numerous attempts, to overcome future energy challenges, are being pursued. In this study, small-scale microbial fuel cells (MFCs, 0.7mL anodic chamber volume) were built to invest... Read More about Small-scale microbial fuel cells utilising uric salts.
