Abstract

The present invention relates to a device comprising a first electrode compartment, the anode compartment, and a second electrode compartment, the cathode compartment, with a quantity of an anode fluid comprising an electrochemically oxidizable substrate and optional further compounds in the anode compartment, a quantity of a cathode fluid comprising an electrochemically reducible substrate and optional further compounds in the cathode compartment, and further an anode at least partially in contact with the anode fluid in the anode compartment and a cathode at least partially in contact with the cathode fluid in the cathode compartment, wherein the anode and cathode are electrically connected and on the surface of the anode and the cathode a catalyst is present for respective catalysis of the electrochemical conversion of the electrochemically oxidizable substrate via an electrochemical oxidation reaction and for catalysis of the electrochemical conversion of the electrochemically reducible substrate via an electrochemical reduction reaction, which catalyst comprises electrochemically active micro-organisms on at least one of the anode or cathode.
