Microbial electrochemical technologies (METs) are based on the capacity of certain microbes to use solid conductors (bioelectrodes) as electron acceptors or donors for their metabolism. During the last 2 decades, a series of promising environmental applications of METs were proposed at lab- or pilot-scales. In this panorama, char-coal derived from pyrolysis of biomass (Biochar) represents a target class of materials that might be a successful alternative to state-of-the-art. Additionally, the electroactive properties of biochar (e-Biochar) in addition to its physical-chemical properties, were recently proposed to play a fundamental role in influencing soil fertility. New composite bioelectrodes based on e-Biochar will be developed and they will be applied at lab-scale in innovative designs of microbial recycling cells, where agro-food wastewater are treated to recycle plant nutrients (N,P,K,Ca,Fe, etc.) to agricultural soil. Field-data in eBiochar-amended maize cultivation trials will be collected, looking at the electroactive microbial communities of the rhizosphere. Life cycle assessment and economic tools will be applied to the eBiochar fertilization strategy, to simulate possible large-scale application of such concepts.

Zecchin, Sarah, 2024, "Microbial communities developed in bioelectrochemical systems with terracotta separators", https://doi.org/10.13130/RD_UNIMI/IUOJV2, UNIMI Dataverse, V1
The dataset includes fasta files originated from Illumina sequencing of bacterial and archaeal 16S rRNA genes. The microbial communities were sampled from different matrices of bioelectrochemical systems including terracotta separators.
