Development of microbial fuel cell prototype for bioeletricity production in wastes treatment


This project will be developed in the context of a PhD Thesis of the Graduate Program in Sustainability of University of Sao Paulo. The main focus is very much aligned to The BIOEN Program of FAPESP, mainly because it is innovation interdisciplinary science and technologically approached at least in two important aspects: (1) To produce renewable energy in the form of bio-electricity, (2) can use wastes or wastewater in order to avoid soil and surface and groundwater pollution. The vinasses from bioethanol production will be simulated prior it´s use in land in sugarcane production. This means the use of vinasses in our Microbial Fuel Cell can be associated with the chain of bioethanol production without disturbing the practices of land application and will produce bioelectricity. This means an important contribution to the science of Sustainability in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals - Agenda 2030 of United Nations. (AU)
