BE SEI: Wiseair

The SEI Bioengineering project was born from a clear challenge: to find an application on the market of an innovative technology studied within the IIT, the microbial fuel cell (MFC). Microbial Fuel Cell is an electrochemical system able to generate electricity from the oxidation of organic matter present into natural environments, such as in particular plants’ soil. Despite its innovation potential, the technical limitations of such technology (above all the extremely low achievable power rate) still obstruct attempts to get it out of research centres and universities.
