Title:
MICROBIAL FUEL CELL DEVICE COMPRISING A WATER-TREATMENT SEPARATING MEMBRANE, AND WASTE-WATER TREATMENT METHOD USING SAME
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2013/069889
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a microbial fuel cell device and to a waste-water treatment method using same, and, more specifically, relates to a microbial fuel cell device comprising: an anode part; a cathode part; an electrode-connecting part for connecting the anode part and the cathode part; a waste-water supply part for fluid communication with the anode part; an outflow water discharge part for fluid communication with the cathode part; and a water-treatment separating membrane for separating the anode part and the cathode part. The present invention makes it possible to effect waste-water treatment in a fashion which is more continuous and stable than with a conventional microbial fuel cell, and allows the removal of suspended matter, harmful microorganisms and viruses, micropollutants and the like that cannot be removed from conventional microbial fuel cell systems and thus allows good-quality outflow water to be produced and at the same time allows high power-density electrical energy to be produced and the invention allows expensive cation exchange membranes to be replaced such that it is possible to achieve an economic waste-water treatment system.
