An integrated microbial fuel cell (MFC)-membrane bioreactor (MBR) system is aimed to develop the strategy of low cost and efficient treatment technology with lesser footprint. Attempts will be made to enhance power generation of MFC by oxidizing organic matter and to achieve high degree of wastewater treatment facilitated by membrane filtration. The system proposed is expected to produce treated water suitable for onsite reuse such as horticulture. Therefore, the specific objectives of the proposed research are: 1. Fabrication of air-cathode MFC, assembled with three different membrane arrangements: (a) Air cathode MFC with separate membrane filtration unit, (b) modified flooded air-cathode MFC to facilitate simultaneous Ultra-filtration (UF) treatment along with electricity generation, and (c) submerged membrane filtration unit inside multiple air-cathode MFC. 2. Development of anode materials with electro-conducting SiOC membrane. 3. Fabrication of ceramic membranes with pore size modification for applications in above mentioned configurations. For application in MFC as separator, to separate anodic and cathodic chamber, proton/cation conductive membranes with different porosities is desired; whereas, for MBR porosity of the membranes is important. In MFC these membranes will be impregnated with electro-conductive materials and catalyst to support higher oxygen reduction reaction. Additionally electron conducting materials will be tested as improved anode material for enhanced interaction with the biofilm. 4. Design, synthesis and testing of low cost catalysts for enhancing the electrode kinetics. 5. Comparing performance of the above mentioned three strategic configurations of modified MFC-MBR systems employing ceramic membranes for efficient organic matter removal, nitrogen removal and electricity generation.
