Abstract A Chemical absorption-bioelectrochemical reduction (CABER) system is based on Chemical absorption-biological reduction (CABR) system, which aims at NO removal and has been studied in many of our previous works. In this paper, we applied polypyrrole (PPy) on the electrode of bioelectrochemical reactor (BER) of CABER system, which induced a much higher current density in the cyclic voltammetry (CV) curve for the electrode itself and better NO removal rate in the system. In addition, a Microbial Electrolysis Cell (MEC) is constructed to study its strengthening mechanism. Results shows that PPy-MEC has a greater Faraday efficiency and higher reduction rate of Fe(III)EDTA and Fe(II)EDTA-NO in the solution when compared to original Carbon MEC, which confirms the advantage of PPy-modified electrode(s) in the CABER system. The results of this study are reported for illustration of potential of CABER technology and design of low-cost high-efficiency NOx control equipment in the future.
