Wastewater and biomass are fed into our reactors, where they undergo biological electrochemical conversion into methane.

Electro-active bacteria

Inside the system, special biofilms of fast-growing, electrically active bacteria are cultivated on electrodes.

Rapid organic breakdown

Electro-active biofilms accelerate the breakdown of organic compounds, releasing electrons.

Migration to the cathode

During the breakdown process, electrons, hydrogen ions and carbon dioxide flow to the cathode.

Methane produced

Methanogenic bacteria on the cathode use the hydrogen ions, electrons and CO2 to generate methane.

The system efficiently treats wastewater and produces methane-rich biogas (up to 80%) for on-site sustainable energy.
