Catalyzing Commercialization: Electrically Active Microbes Clean Wastewater and Produce Energy


With funding from the National Science Foundation, Boston-based Cambrian Innovation has developed the EcoVolt Reactor, a modular anaerobic wastewater treatment system. The reactor uses an electromethanogenic process in which microbes convert organic matter into biogas with a high methane fraction. The methane can be used to generate clean electricity and heat.
