Electromicrobiology is the field of prokaryotes that can interact with charged electrodes, and use them as electron donors/acceptors. This is done via a method known as extracellular electron transport. EET‐capable bacterium can be used for different purposes, water reclamation, small power sources, electrosynthesis and pollution remedy. Research on EET‐capable bacterium is in its early stages and most of the applications are in the developmental phase, but the scope for significant contributions is high and moving forward.
