Contents

Both biotransformation and electrochemical processes play an important role in the development of sustainable and efficient production processes. Nature provides an almost inexhaustible number of biocatalysts that can be used to optimize existing production processes or to develop completely new biotechnological processes and products. In addition to the special importance of electrochemistry in the field of energy conversion and storage, electrochemical processes can also be used in biochemical synthesis processes, for example for the environmentally friendly production of reagents. The combination of electrochemistry and biotransformation into bioelectrochemical synthesis processes enables a wide range of future-oriented production systems.

In the first part of the lecture the basic aspects of electrochemical process and reaction engineering are presented. The second part focuses on the corresponding applications in bioelectrochemical processes.

Contents:

Definitions and basic terms

  • Components of a reactor
  • Electrolytes
  • Important regularities

Fundamentals of technical electrochemistry

  • Electrochemical Thermodynamics
  • Electrochemical Kinetics
  • Transport processes in electrochemistry
  • Electrochemical Reaction Engineering
  • Electrochemical process engineering
  • Measurement methods

Bioelectrochemical processes

  • Fuel Cells
  • Microbial electrolysis
  • Microbial electrosyntheses
  • Electroenzymatic processes
  • Bio-Electrochemical remediation processes
  • Electrochemical Bio-Mining
  • Electrochemical processes in the processing of organic products

In the laboratory part, for example, cyclovoltammograms of mediators and biofilms are measured, electrochemical reactants for enzymatic reactions are produced or operated by biofuel cells.
