Microbial Electrochemical and Fuel Cells: Fundamentals and Applications contains the most updated information on bio-electrical systems and their ability to drive an electrical current by mimicking bacterial interactions found in nature to produce a small amount of power. One of the most promising features of the microbial fuel cell is its application to generate power from wastewater, and its use in the treatment of water to remove contaminants, making it a very sustainable source of power generation that can feasibly find application in rural areas where providing more conventional sources of power is often difficult. The book explores, in detail, both the technical aspects and applications of this technology, and was written by an international team of experts in the field who provide an introduction to microbial fuel cells that looks at their electrochemical principles and mechanisms, explains the materials that can be used for the various sections of the fuel cells, including cathode and anode materials, and provides key analysis of microbial fuel cell performance looking at their usage in hydrogen production, waste treatment, and sensors, amongst other applications. Includes coverage of the types and principles of electrochemical cells Provides information on the construction of fuel cells and appropriate materials Presents the latest on this renewable source of energy and the process for the treatment of waste water

Die Brennstoffzellen haben die Phantasie von Technikern aller Richtungen schon von jeher besonders angeregt. Der Wunsch, elektrische Energie direkt aus fossilen Brennstoffen zu gewinnen, ist zuerst um die Jahrhundertwende aus theoretischen Überlegungen heraus entstanden. Von 1920 an datierten ernst hafte Versuche, diese theoretische Möglichkeit auch experimentell zu verwirk lichen. Aber erst in den Jahren nach dem zweiten Weltkrieg kann man eine moderne technologische Entwicklung beobachten. Die Ursache daflir waren die Verbesserung der Materialien, die als Baustoffe dienen konnten, die Erkennt nisse in der Katalyse, und nicht zuletzt die Notwendigkeit, flir die Weltraum forschung geeignete Stromquellen auf der Basis von Wasserstoff und Sauerstoff zur VerfUgung zu stellen. In den siebziger Jahren wurde die Technologie der Brennstoffzellen "erd gebunden", und man versuchte, ihre Vorteile flir den Kraftwerksbau nutzbar zu machen. Als Brennstoffe verwendete man Erdgas und Dieselöl, die in Dampf reaktoren umgeformt wurden, so daß wieder Wasserstoff der eigentliche Brenn stoff war. Als Resultat der Erdölverknappung und des Umweltbewußtseins ist in der vergangenen Dekade das Interesse an Brennstoffzellen beträchtlich gestiegen. Ebenso hat der Enthusiasmus über ihre Zukunftsaussichten nach einem vorüber gehenden Tief wieder zugenommen. Anwendungen für Brennstoffzellen sind: Kleine Aggregate zur Stromerzeu gung, zunächst als Ersatz für Dieselmotor-Generatoren in entlegenen Lokalitäten, später vielleicht für den Fahrzeugantrieb; mittelgroße Anlagen zur Produktion von Elektrizität in Kraftwerken innerhalb von Stadtbezirken; große Brennstoff batterien für den Lastausgleich in Verbundnetzen.
