Energy efficient and sustainable aquaculture water treatment Using microbial fuel cells and membrane-supported biofilms

Major Goals and Objectives

  • Investigate the feasibility of a new treatment process, based on microbial fuel cells and membrane-supported biofilms reactors for removing nitrogen and sulfide in simulated recirculating aquaculture systems wastewater.
  • Determine the nitrogen and sulfide removal efficiencies, and levels of electric power production
  • Test different reactor configurations under variable loading conditions
