Bioelectrochemical systems allow the production of electricity or other products of interest, such as hydrogen, by using the electrons from the biological degradation of an organic substrate. Bioelectrochemical systems are an emerging technology in the field of wastewater valorization. The opportunities for methanol as a carbon source in these systems are discussed in this chapter. Electricity production from methanol in microbial fuel cells requires the presence of a syntrophic biological consortium. Hydrogen production from methanol is restrained in compact reactor designs (i.e., single chamber microbial electrolysis cells) due to undesired biological interactions.
