  • Construction of different architectures of MFC reactors

Different architectures of microbial fuel cells have been studied and are being developed for installation in the experimental platform of IRSTEA in the treatment plant of La Feyssine.

- 3D printed MFC

  • Microbial fuel cells manufactured at low cost with 3D printing technology.
  • Architecture adapted to a series connection of the cells without ionic connection problems
  • Architecture adapted for installation in the aeration basins without inhibition problems of the biofilm activity by the aeration of effluents.
    Work of Study Project No. 73 (2016) : See Report of the SP n°73

- Floating MFC reactors

  • Architecture suitable for direct installation in the aeration basins of wastewater treatment plants.
    Work of Study Project No. 88 (2015) : See Report of the SP n°88

- Pipe shaped MFC

-* Architecture suitable for integration in pipelines of wastewater treatment plants.
Work of Study Project No. 89 (2014) : See Report of the SP n°89

Francis Leboeuf Prize for Best Project Study

- Taylor-Couette MFC reactor

  • An architecture allowing independent control of the flow regime of effluents in the reactor and their residence time. This architecture is suitable for studying the influence of hydrodynamic stress on biofilm structure at different scales.
