On the other hand, the data should be critically interpreted when a highly heterogeneous EAB is investigated because the results can vary between locations . Microelectrodes can be used in conjunction with voltammetric techniques in two modes. 4. A redox microelectrode was stepped down toward the bottom of a S. oneidensis biofilm. At each step, redox potential was measured, producing a redox potential depth profile inside the biofilm. In the presence of soluble redox mediators, redox potential is expected to increase toward the biofilm electrode.
We believe there are five main issues that need to be addressed in this process. 1. Scaling up of the current density generated by electrochemically active biofilms One of the limitations of MFCs, and of BESs generally, is that the current density does not scale up linearly with the active surface area of the biofilm electrode to meet the demand of high-capacity processes. The scaling up of MFCs has been partially addressed by methods such as reducing anodic and cathodic overpotentials, increasing solution conductivity, decreasing mass transfer resistances, decreasing electrode spacing, using novel air cathodes, and stacking [70, 100, 153–160].
