A Dynamic Biofilm Model for a Microbial Electrolysis Cell
AbstractIn this work, a mathematical description of a Microbial Electrolysis Cell (MEC) is proposed, taking into account the global mass balances of the different species in the system and considering that all the involved microorganisms are attached to the anodic biological film. Three main biological reactions are introduced, which were obtained from the solution of partial differential equations describing the spatial distribution of potential and substrate in the biofilm. The simulation of the model was carried out using numerical methods, and the results are discussed. View Full-Text
