No specific knowledge needed, basics in (chemical) mass balances, thermodynamics and kinetics. Previous participation in the course “Biotechnology of Conversion: Fundamentals of (Bio)Electrochemistry” given by Falk Harnisch and Benjamin Korth is recommended but not compulsory.
Rapidly expanding and fluctuating electric power production based on renewable sources creates a need for electricity storage and utilization. This offers unprecedented potential for the utilization of electric energy in environmental and bio-technology.
For electrochemical process functions chemical, physical and biological heterogeneities at different structural and temporal levels play key roles. These heterogeneities can be utilized and steered using electrochemical potentials, e.g. for synthesis, degradation and sensing which requires profound knowledge on underlying principles and mechanisms.
