Gas-permeable hydrophobic tubular membranes for ammonia recovery in bio-electrochemical systems

Author affiliations

Abstract

The application of a gas-permeable hydrophobic tubular membrane in bio-electrochemical systems enables efficient recovery of ammonia (NH3) from their cathode compartments. Due to a hydrogen evolution reaction at the cathode, no chemical addition was required to increase the pH for continuous NH3 recovery from wastewater.
