INTERACTIVE WEB CONFERENCE
Microbial Fuel Cells
Microbial Fuel Cells
Thursday, July 29, 2010
3:00 – 4:30pm Eastern Time
Bioelectrochemical systems: The next step in resource recovery from wastewater is direct production of electricity (microbial fuel cells) and products (microbial electrolysis cells) in bioelectrochemical systems.
Microbial fuel cells (MFC) are an alternative method of producing energy where bacteria are used to simultaneously treat wastewater and generate electricity. Variations on this theme include microbial electrolysis cells (MECs) which can generate hydrogen and /or chemicals such as hydrogen peroxide and sodium hydroxide from waste water.
This webinar will demystify the topic, and include presentations from companies that are currently going to market and deploying these solutions.
The webinar will be of interest to venture capital investors, water technology companies, regulators and water technology end-users who are keen to track innovation in this emerging area.
- Technology Overview – bio-electrochemical systems,
what they are and what they can do
- Current State of the Art – how market ready are these technologies?
- Pathway to Commercialization
- Companies and Research Groups active in this space
- The future of this technology in the next 5-10 years
Organized in Partnership with
Paul O'Callaghan, CEO, O2 ENVIRONMENTAL INC .
Eytan Levy, CEO, EMEFCY
Lars Angenent, Director, Agricultural Waste Management Lab, CORNELL UNIVERSITY
César Torres, BIODESIGN INSTITUTE AT ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY
Rene Rozendal, R&D Manager, BILEXYS
O2 ENVIRONMENTAL Inc will be running a series of BlueTech Tracker™ webinars to highlight key opportunities and emerging trends in water technologies. Each webinar will bring together leading experts and water technology companies. The webinars will focus on the business and market opportunity for these innovative solutions.
The series will be of interest to venture capital investors, water technology companies, regulators and end users. We will show how the drivers for change are reshaping our water system and how companies that are at the leading edge of these trends will be positioned to be part of a new, smarter, more efficient water system.
The following is a snap-shot of some of the topic areas that will be covered in the series:
