(FR) PILES À COMBUSTIBLE MICROBIENNES ÉVOLUTIVES À ÉCOULEMENT CONTINU
Abstract
(EN)
Disclosed are modular microbial fuel cell (MFC) devices, systems and methods for treating wastewater and generating electrical energy through a bioelectrochemical waste-to-energy conversion process. In some aspects, a modular MFC system includes a wastewater pretreatment system to receive and pre-treat raw wastewater for feeding pre-treated wastewater for bioelectrochemical processing; one or more modular MFC devices to bioelectrochemically process the pre-treated wastewater by concurrently generating electrical energy and digesting organic contaminants and particulates in the wastewater to yield treated, cleaner water; and a water collection module to receive the treated water from the one or more modular MFC devices and store the treated water and/or route the treated water from the system.

L'invention concerne des dispositifs de pile à combustible microbienne (MFC) modulaires, ainsi que des systèmes et des procédés pour traiter des eaux usées et générer de l'énergie électrique par l'intermédiaire d'un processus de valorisation bioélectrochimique des déchets. Selon certains aspects, un système MFC modulaire comprend un système de prétraitement d'eaux usées pour recevoir et prétraiter des eaux usées brutes afin d'acheminer des eaux usées prétraitées vers un traitement bioélectrochimique ; un ou plusieurs dispositifs MFC modulaires pour le traitement bioélectrochimique des eaux usées prétraitées en produisant simultanément de l'énergie électrique et en digérant les contaminants organiques et les particules dans les eaux usées afin de produire une eau traitée et plus propre ; et un module de collecte d'eau pour recevoir l'eau traitée provenant du ou des dispositifs MFC modulaires et stocker l'eau traitée et/ou acheminer l'eau traitée à partir du système.
