BIOELECTROCHEMICAL SYSTEMS FOR REMOVAL OF SELECTED METALS AND PERCHLORATE FROM GROUNDWATER: A REVIEW
Cecconet, D., A. Callegari, and A.G. Capodaglio.
Energies 11:Article 2643(2018)

This review examines the application of bioelectrochemical systems (BESs) for groundwater remediation of arsenic, cadmium, chromium, vanadium, and perchlorate, focusing also on the perspectives of the technology in the groundwater treatment field. BESs present an alternative to conventional treatments for a wide variety of wastewaters and have been proposed as a feasible option for groundwater remediation due to the nature of the technology, i.e., the presence of two different redox environments, the use of electrodes as virtually inexhaustible electron acceptor/donor (anode and cathode, respectively), and the possibility of microbial catalysis enhance their potential to achieve complete remediation of contaminants, even in combination. https://www.mdpi.com/1996-1073/11/10/2643/pdf
