BIOELECTROCHEMICAL SYSTEMS FOR GROUNDWATER REMEDIATION: THE DEVELOPMENT TREND AND RESEARCH FRONT REVEALED BY BIBLIOMETRIC ANALYSIS
Li, W., X. Chen, L. Xie, Z. Liu, an X. Xiong.
Water 11(8):1532(2019)

Researchers collected studies published from 1999-2018 in the Web of Science Core Collection that focused on information related to bioelectrochemical systems in order to visualize the development trajectory and trends of the technology. Studies that focused on bioelectrochemical systems for groundwater remediation have increased in the last 2 decades, especially in China, Germany, Italy, and the U.S. Network maps of the keywords and burst terms suggest that recent research has focused on reductive microbial diversity, electron transfer, and microbial fuel cells. Future studies should focus on microbial enrichment culture, energy supply/recovery, and combined pollution remediation. This article is Open Access at https://www.mdpi.com/2073-4441/11/8/1532.
