Advanced Water Management Centre has
constructed a pilot scale microbial fuel cell. The pilot scale
plant was built on the site of the Foster's brewery in Yatala,
Queensland (Australia). Brewery wastewater is used as feed.
At this moment, the reactor has a
volume of approximately 1 m³ and consists of 12 modules. Carbon
fibre anodes and cathodes are used, based on a brush design. In
a second phase, 12 additional modules with varying designs will
expect several months of trials before a correct assessment of
the technology benefits can be made.
