Electron production and transport is the essence of life.




THE MAIN FOCUS in this lab is to recover energy and resource from environmental pollutants; efficient degradation and selected conversion of pollutants are our object. Environmental pollutants can be treated by redox reactions. Microorganisms play an important role in pollution control of water, remediation of soil pollution, exploitation of renewable energy, resource recovery of waste, and environmental monitoring. We are studying electron transfer of microorganisms to reveal the key scientific fundamentals via interdisciplinary approach.


Prof. Feng ZHAO received his doctorate degree in chemistry at Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2004. He then spent two years as a research assistant at the University of Greifswald working on the development of microbial fuel cells. In 2007, he came to the University of Surrey as a senior research officer and there his research focused on the development of enzymatic and microbial fuel cells. He moved to Institute of Urban Environment, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2010. More......
