BioelectroMET is a collaborative research project between Magneto special anodes (NL), MAST Carbon International ltd (UK), Centre de Rescherche Public Henri Tudor (Lux), Universitat Jaume I (Es), Linnaeus University (Se), Tampere University of Technology (Fi) and Wetsus, centre of excellence for sustainable water technology (NL). The project is funded by Europe’s 7th Framework Programme and coordinated by Wetsus. BioelectroMET will investigate, develop and demonstrate a bioelectrochemical system capable of recovering metals from metallurgical waste and process streams with no or limited energy input., The bioelectrochemical system will combine electrowinning at the cathode with the oxidation of biodegradable substrates at a bioanode. This technology is based on research on microbial fuel cell technology conducted in the Wetsus Resource Recovery Theme.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No 282970.
