Electric field-assisted biosorption
Source: Biotechnology Letters, Volume 26, Number 6, March 2004 , pp. 533-537(5)
Abstract:A bisorption process using electric fields to facilitate contact between a sorbate and non-living biomass is described. The latter is enclosed within a semi-permeable membrane together with an electrode. The counter electrode is placed in the sorbate solution and an established potential across the electrodes facilitates electrokinetic movement of the sorbate to the biosorbant material.
