Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC) is a device that converts chemical energy from wastewater to electrical energy by the catalytic reaction of microorganisms. This process can be used to convert wastewater into clean water while the electricity produced can power peripheral devices. This process can be used as a self-sustaining water recycling device for industrial and commercial applications.
MFC consists of anode and cathode compartments separated by a membrane. In the anode compartment nutrients are oxidized by specific microorganisms. KULR’s unique cathode architecture offers a large interface area, a thinner boundary layer, and low-pressure drop. This structure offers wide-flow distribution, low electrical resistance, and strong electrical contacts to generate electricity more efficiently.
