MEET-ME4WATER - Meeting Microbial Electrochemistry for water (AG110)

MEET-ME4WATER will focus on overcoming the barriers to scale-up and demonstration of microbial electrochemical technologies (METs) and bring them faster to market. These technologies treat waste water and, at the same time, produce value added products (chemicals, H2, and/or desalinate water at zero energy cost simultaneously) whilst producing energy. METs have a well explored innovation potential for sustainable development of waste water treatment systems. Further work is needed to fully control the engineering and biotechnological aspects of these systems at larger scale.

With this purpose, we have defined two lines of work:
• Line of work A: MET applied to urban and industrial waste water treatment (and desalinated water production) at zero energy and sludge production/disposal cost.
• Line of work B: MET applied to recovery and synthesis of added value products (i.e. compounds from urine, caustic soda, hydrogen) from waste water at zero energy and sludge production/disposal cost.

Together with IMDEA Water, the University of Alcalá and aqualia, members of the consortium are universities of Ghent (Belgium) and Newcastle (UK), research centers CENTA (Spain), VITO (Belgium) and European Business and Technology Centre-EBTC (India), technology companies Magneto (The Netherlands) and Emefcy (Israel), ISMET (International Society for Microbial Electrochemistry and technology) and the Region of Andalusia.
