Electricity from wastewater seminar report, abstract

Electricity from waste water Abstract
Generating energy from waste water treatment plants is not a new concept. You may find at least 24 sewage treatment plants in Oregon, generating electricity by burning methane, a product of sludge-digesting bacteria. There is another method by that you may generate electricity with the help of microbes. It may easily be stored in a fuel cell. The name of the method is a microbial reverse electrolysis cell (MRC). In this technology, there is a microbial fuel cell that helps to convert human and plant waste into electron. You may generate electric current with it. You may generate about half a volt per cell. You may also add more voltage by reverse electrodialysis system.

You may capture the energy difference between saltwater and freshwater and the reverse is that what gains you lack energy. The purpose is to store energy with the help of reverse electro dialysis by pumping the solution across the membrane. These membranes let positive and negative ions pass through. The major disadvantage is that you need many membranes to get an electric current. These add up to the cost as membranes are expensive. You may get higher voltage and current by combining a few membranes to the microbial fuel cell.

We prepared and published this seminar abstract for final year engineering students seminar research. You should do your own research additional to this information before presenting your seminar.
