Bioenergy for water desalination using advanced carbon materials as anode and cathode electrodes

Pau Bosch-Jimenez

LEITAT Technological Center

Pau Bosch has a degree in Chemistry from the University of Girona and then the Masters course in Science and Chemical Technology at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. Currently developing their professional work in the R & D Energy and Engineering group of Technology Centre LEITAT. The line of research has specialized mainly in two fields: 1) new generation of photovoltaic cellsand 2) Bioelectrochemical systems (BES). In terms of BES research, Pau is developing microbial fuel cells, microbial electrosynthesis cells and other systems, focusing the research on advance materials utilization, electrochemical operation, optimization characterization and up-scaling.


Current desalination technologies require high energy input, being reverse osmosis (RO) the most-widely used technology for seawater desalination with an energy consumption of at least 3 kWh/m3. In this context, MIDES project... [ view full abstract ]
