Micro-organisms performed denitrification by using electrons supplied by bacteria oxidizing domestic wastewater and acetate as substrates in the anode chamber. This two-chambered MFC equìpped with a biocathode generated during more than 1.5 month up to 9.4mWm-2 of anode surface or 0.19Wm-3 of anode chamber volume, while removing over 65% of COD, 84% of total nitrogen and nearly 30% of suspended solids with domestic wastewater as a substrate, and nearly 95% of acetate in the subsequent experiments. © IWA Publishing 2008.||Source Title:||Water Science and Technology||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/87447||ISSN:||02731223||DOI:||10.2166/wst.2008.343|
