Combining Chemo- and Bio-Electro - Catalytic Synthesis of Chemicals


CO2 is the primary contributor to global warming. The conversion of waste CO2 into valuable products has been proposed by many researchers. A novel mechanism is microbial electro-synthesis (MES), in which electrochemically active microbes use renewable electricity to convert CO2 in organic molecules. MES is considered more efficient and sustainable than photosynthetic bio-fuel production.
