Falk Harnisch

A Fully Cardboard Based Microbial Fuel Cell

Dr. Harnisch’s project that he conducts in collaboration with Dr. Schröder (TU Braunschweig) proposes to develop a fully cardboard based, low-cost, high-performance, ready-to-use, sustainable microbial fuel cell which could clean wastewater while generating clean water and electric energy. The core of the microbial fuel cell is electrodes produced form corrugated cardboard via a simple carbonization procedure. The project will develop corrugated cardboard electrodes to be used as anode and cathode material which could be implemented in existing infrastructure.
