Project: BioElectrochemical Lithium rEcoVEry (BELIEVE)
Start date: February 15, 2023
Duration: 18 months
Department of Microbial Sciences, University of Surrey, Guildford, Surrey GU2 7XH
Project Supervisors: Professor Claudio Avignone Rossa, Professor Jhuma Sadhukhan, Dr Siddharth Gadkari There is currently a high demand for Li, a high-tech metal found only in a few locations worldwide. Li production is costly, energy-demanding, and environmentally damaging: It is essential to design and optimise methods for recovering Li from spent LiB. This project will focus on designing and optimising a bioelectrochemical system (BES) to recover high purity Li. We will design a microbial electrochemical system to ...
