new publication in Environmental Science: Water Research & Technology

please find our most recent publicaiton on Bioelectrochemical systems for nitrogen removal and recovery from wastewater published in Environmental Science: Water Research & Technology.


The application of a hydrophobic tubular membrane in Bio-Electrochemical Systems enables an efficient recovery of ammonia (NH3) from the cathode compartment. Due to the Hydrogen Evolution Reaction at the cathode, no chemical addition to increase the pH was required for continuous NH3 recovery from wastewater.
