EPA Grant Number: SU835306
Title: Development of Photo-Bioelectrochemical Systems for Wastewater Treatment and Bioenergy Production

Recent technology innovations have used microbes in a fuel cell to produce energy or algae in a bioreactor to treat wastewater. University of Wisconsin Milwaukee students are developing a new approach that integrates the microbial fuel cell and algal bioreactor into one device to produce its own electricity, purify wastewater and make biofuel. It has the potential to reduce costs and the amount of energy cities and towns need to treat their wastewater as well as produce biofuels.

Challenge Area(s): Energy, Water
