The goal of this study was to evaluate the potential of bioelectrochemical systems (BES) for domestic wastewater treatment and reuse.BES are systems capable of using microorganisms as catalyst on electrodes for power generation from water contaminants removal.

The BES are a promising sustainable technology that could be used for sewage treatment to allow its reuse, since studies verified the capacity of BES to produce energy, remove organic matter, nutrients and pathogens from sewage, and produce low waste quantities.
