The concept of microbial biotechnology has been recently altered by an exciting finding: the extracelullar electron transfer (EET), a process by which the so-called electroactive bacteria can transfer electrons to electroconductive materials as a new form of respiration where electricity can be harvested or, additionally, accept electrons from those materials so they can be fed using an electrical current as a source of energy

Our research group is fully devoted to merge microbial, electrochemical and engineering tools to restore polluted environments by exploring the world behind the microbial electrochemical technologies (MET). We truly believe that investing time in studying the basic aspects of this novel field will accelerate the design and implementation of innovative applications able to make Earth a better place to live in.
