  • Abstract:

    Bioelectrochemical system represents a novel technology where the microbial catalytic reaction occurs at bioanode and results in bioelectricity generation from waste and renewable biomass. 

    At the current stage, fossil-based fuel is depleting, so newly sustainable form of renewable energy resources is required, where algal-based biofuel generation provides a new source of energy along with sequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide, which in turn decreases the global warming issues. This review emphasizes the potential applications of microalgae-based bioelectrochemical systems for renewable power generation, wastewater treatment, CO2 sequestration and value-added products. 

    Moreover, this critical review also highlights the current developments in microalgal MFC integrated systems by discussing the current potential challenges and drawbacks.
