The oxygen reduction reaction ORR is one of the major factors that is limiting the overall performance output of microbial fuel cells MFC.
Challenges and constraints of using oxygen cathodes in microbial fuel cells.
The fuel cell is an electrochemical device that can directly convert the chemical energy of fuels into electrical energy through a chemical reaction at the interface of the electrode and the electrolyte, without going through the heat engine process, and is not limited by the Carnot cycle, so the energy conversion efficiency is high without noise and pollution. Among them, the proton exchange membrane fuel cell PEMFC is a promising power source for electric vehicles and stationary residential applications. However, current PEMFCs have several problems that need to be solved, including high cost, insufficient power density, and limited performance durability. Therefore, to achieve large-scale application of PEMFCs, the development of advanced Pt-based catalysts is very important to solve these problems.

A fuel cell uses the chemical energy of hydrogen or another fuel to cleanly and efficiently produce electricity. If hydrogen is the fuel, electricity, water, and heat are the only products. Fuel cells are unique in terms of the variety of their potential applications; they can provide power for systems as large as a utility power station and as small as a laptop computer. Fuel cells can be used in a wide range of applications, including transportation, material handling, stationary, portable, and emergency backup power applications. Fuel cells have several benefits over conventional combustion-based technologies currently used in many power plants and passenger vehicles. Fuel cells have lower emissions than combustion engines. Hydrogen fuel cells emit only water, so there are no carbon dioxide emissions and no air pollutants that create smog and cause health problems at the point of operation.

The cost of materials is one of the biggest barriers for wastewater driven microbial fuel cells MFCs. Many studies use expensive materials with idealistic wastes. Realistically the choice of an ion selective membrane or nonspecific separators must be made in the context of the cost and performance of materials available. Fourteen membranes and separators were characterized for durability, oxygen diffusion and ionic resistance to enable informed membrane selection for reactor tests. Subsequently MFCs were operated in a cost efficient reactor design using Nafion, ethylene tetrafluoroethylene ETFE or polyvinylidene fluoride PVDF membranes, a nonspecific separator Rhinohide , and a no-membrane design with a carbon-paper internal gas diffusion cathode. Over a hypothetical lifetime of 10 years the generated energy 1 to 2.
Ему захотелось увидеть ее глаза, он надеялся найти в них избавление. Но в них была только смерть. Смерть ее веры в. Любовь и честь были забыты. Мечта, которой он жил все эти годы, умерла.
Вскоре спуск закончился, переключились какие-то шестеренки, и лифт снова начал движение, на этот раз горизонтальное. Сьюзан чувствовала, как кабина набирает скорость, двигаясь в сторону главного здания АНБ.
Беккер заговорил по-испански с сильным франко-американским акцентом: - Меня зовут Дэвид Беккер. Я из канадского посольства. Наш гражданин был сегодня доставлен в вашу больницу.
Через пять минут автобус, подпрыгивая, несся по темной сельской дороге. Беккер повернулся к панку. - Этот тарантас когда-нибудь остановится. - Еще пять миль.
Ответа не последовало. Сьюзан повернулась к Соши.
