Bio-Inspired Energy

The main goal of the Bio-Inspired Energy Research Line is to develop a new class of hybrid (biological-inorganic) Fuel Cell generators able to directly and efficiently harvest chemical energy of organic substrates (fuels) from the environment. This class of devices will be designed exploiting different catalysis routes: new inorganic catalysts, optimized biocatalysts and/or proper combinations of both bio and inorganic catalysts.

Four main application domains are under investigation:

  • new portable energy sources
  • environmental monitoring
  • water and soil remediation
  • water treatment and desalination

Laboratories

BioEn Lab – The Bio Energy Laboratory is organized in three main parts:

  • Facilities for Nano Materials Synthesis: Paar Reactor, Microwave Reactor, CO2 Supercritical Dryer, Freeze Dryer, Electrospinner
  • Electrochemical Characterization: RRDE, Arbin BT-2000 test station, Potentiostat and galvanostat, test bench for bio fuel cell characterization
  • Biology: incubators for bacteria growth, biological and chemical woods
