Final report

 
Results in Hungarian
A kutatási projekt során különféle szubsztrátokat és alapanyagokat felhasználva megmutattuk, hogy a bioelektrokémiai rendszerek, úgymint a mikrobiális elektrohidrogenezis/elektrolízis cellákat (MEC) képesek biohidrogén előállítására. Ezenkívül, a bioelektrokémiai rendszerek alkalmazása kaszkád bioreaktorokban előnyösebb lehet az anaerob pl. biohidrogén fermentációk elfolyóinak hasznosítására s a MEC-t hatékonyabban alkalmazhatjuk fermentációs feldolgozási (downstream) egységként. Az eredmények tükrében elmondható, hogy a két-kamrás MEC előnyösebb lehet az egy-kamrás változattal szemben, mivel előbbi esetében kevésbé valószínű a termék (hidrogén) szennyeződése egyéb gázokkal, pl. metánnal. A gáznemű szennyeződések eltávolítása céljából specifikus, enzim-katalizált gáz szeparációs membránokat fejlesztettünk és teszteltünk. Két-kamrás bioelektrokémiai rendszerek esetén rámutattunk az elektródok között elhelyezkedő membránok kulcsfontosságú szerepére, s hatására a folyamat teljesítményének javításában. Az eredményeink további konklúziója, hogy a jól/alkalmasan megválasztott mikrobiális izolátumokkal végrehajtott bioaugmentáció egy potenciális útja lehet a két-kamrás, kevert kultúrával inokulált bioelektrokémiai rendszerek hatékonyságának növelésének.
Results in English
During the project, it was shown using various substrates and feedstock that bioelectrochemical systems, including microbial electrohydrogenezis/electrolysis cells are capable to harvest biohydrogen. Furthermore, it seems to be more benficial to apply bioelectrochemical systems in cascade bioreactors to polish anaerobic effluents and thus, MECs could be recognized as sufficient downstream units. The findings of the project imply that two-chambered cells may be advantageous over single-cell MECs to overcome issues related with the contamination of biohydrogen gas by methane. To remove such gaseous impurities, the development of specific, enzyme-catalyzed gas separation membranes was undertaken. For two-chamber bioelectrochemical systems, it was shown that membrane separators (between the electrodes) play a key-role to enhance the process performance. Additionally, it was found that bioaugmentation by selected microbial isolates could be a potential way forward to improve the working efficiency of two-chamber, mixed culture bioelectrochemical applications.
