Bioelectricity & Bioelectrical Research

Bioelectricity & Bioelectrical Research

Microbes generate energy at the expense of electrons produced during their metabolism, which is known as bioelectricity. Bioelectric potentials are produced by a variety of biological processes and typically range from one to a few hundred millivolts in strength. The electric eel, on the other hand, generates currents of one ampere at 600 to 1,000 volts. Microbial fuel cells (MFCs)-based bioelectricity production is an alternative, competent, consistent, clean, and effective approach for producing green and renewable energy. MFC is a powerful technology that captures energy in the form of bioelectricity from organic matter (including trash) during microbial metabolism. Electromicrobiology refers to the study of prokaryotes that can interact with charged electrodes and use them as electron donors or acceptors. This is accomplished through a mechanism known as extracellular electron transport, in which outer membrane cytochromes are employed to oxidise and/or decrease insoluble electron acceptors that would otherwise be unavailable.
