19 Jul Laying waste to energy problems
The purpose of this research is to use civil wastewaters entering the purification plant and those coming out of it after various treatments to build a galvanic battery and produce electric current. The water sent for purification contains molecules formed by elements such as carbon, nitrogen, sulfur and phosphorus in a predominantly “reduced” state and is scarce in oxygen concentration. The water that comes out of purification contains the same elements in a predominantly “oxidized” state and is rich in oxygen level. A prototype of this cell is assembled in order to analyze the generated potential difference and the involved chemical reactions.
