This project is running in EXPO Milano 2015, with the aim of introducing a general audience into the mechanisms of energy production from bacteria. Abraham Esteve Núñez talked about 'Bioelectrochemical systems: recovery energy and valuable products from wastewater' and show some of the applications that are the objet of projects like SmartWetland or the most recent iMETland granted by the H2020 programme.

The workshop held on 18th October presented the experience of researchers and Italian companies that have taken up the challenge of producing electricity using microbial fuel cells and the project Bioelectric Light (part-financed by the ERDF 2007/2013). The protagonists, along with other international experts, discussed the ongoing trials in Italy and the world, illustrating the first prototypes to power environmental sensors, cell phones and even an electric toilet.
