- ... BACKGROUND: Coking wastewater is generated from coal coking, coal gas purification, and by-product recovery processes. Increased interest is being focused on finding more sustainably effective and energy-efficient methods for treating this wastewater. In this work, a system termed microbial fuel cell-electro-oxidation (MFC-EO) was developed for simultaneous coking wastewater treatment and bioelect ...

Enhancement of Cr (VI) reduction rate and power production from biocathode microbial fuel cells (MFCs) was achieved using indigenous bacteria from Cr (VI)-contaminated site as inoculum and MFC architecture with a relatively large cathode-specific surface area of 340-900 m² m⁻³. A specific Cr (VI) reduction rate of 2.4 ± 0.2 mg g⁻¹VSS h⁻¹ and a power production of 2.4 ± 0.1 W m⁻³ at a current densi ...
