Electrochemistry for Independent Mobile Energy Suply and Water Disinfection

POSTER:  Electrochemistry poses unique option for independent system. It uses electric energy as part of chemical reaction and can be realized worldwide if source of electric energy (i.e. solar panels) is available. Electrochemistry also have unavoidable role for energy storage. For longtime energy storage and for onsite fuel generation the electrolysis of water is versatile option. Hydrogen generated form water onsite can be stored and accordingly to needs converted back to electric energy in fuel cell based system. Minimum noise and no need of supply of huge volumes of fuel to be transported and/or stored represent the main benefits. Another attractive application of electrochemistry technologies is water disinfection. As the water sources are frequently contaminated naturally or intentionally by humans, electrochemical advanced oxidation processes can eliminate biological as well as chemical contamination. Direct generation of ozone or ferrates(VI) on site can eliminate threats like anthrax only by use of electricity.
