The bioelectrochemical system was operated as microbial fuel cell (for bioelectricity production) to microbial electrolysis cell (with applied voltage). Sulphate reduction was not observed without applied voltage and only resulted when the cathodic potential was poised at -0.26 V vs. SHE, with a minimum energy requirement of 0.7 V, while maximum removal occurred at 1.4 V applied. The reduction of sulphate led to sulphide production, which was entrapped in the ionic form thanks to the high biocathode pH (i.e. pH of 10) obtained during the process" , "dc.description.sponsorship": "This research was financially supported by the Spanish Government (CSD2007-00055, CTQ2011-23632 and IPT-2011-1073-310000)" , "dc.format.mimetype": "application/pdf" , "dc.language.iso": "eng" , "dc.publisher": "Elsevier" , "dc.relation": "MEC/PN 2007-2013/CSD2007-00055" , "dc.relation": "MICINN/PN 2012-2014/CTQ2011-23632" , "dc.relation.isformatof": "Reproducció digital del document publicat a: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.biortech.2012.12.050" , "dc.relation.ispartof": "© Bioresource Technology, 2013, vol. 130, p. 218-223" , "dc.relation.ispartofseries": "Articles publicats (D-EQATA)" , "dc.rights": "Tots els drets reservats" , "dc.subject": "Bioelectroquímica" , "dc.subject": "Bioelectrochemistry" , "dc.subject": "Biofilms" , "dc.subject": "Aigües residuals -- Depuració -- Oxidació" , "dc.subject": "Sewage -- Purification -- Oxidation" , "dc.title": "Biocatalysed sulphate removal in a BES cathode" , "dc.type": "info:eu-repo/semantics/article" , "dc.rights.accessRights": "info:eu-repo/semantics/embargoedAccess" , "dc.embargo.terms": "Cap" , "dc.type.version": "info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion" , "dc.identifier.doi": "http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.biortech.2012.12.050" , "dc.contributor.funder": "Ministerio de Educación y Ciencia (Espanya)" , "dc.contributor.funder": "Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación (Espanya)" }
