A Review on Microbial Fuel Cell Performance for Energy Generation
Keywords:Microbial fuel cell, Microbial oxidation of waste, Wastewater treatment, Electricity generation
Much work in a microbial fuel cell (MFC) is necessary in today’s context to meet an environmentfriendly and sustainable technology for alternative energy. A huge depletion in fossil fuel is going on rapidly. There may be high chance of a fuel crisis and global warming shortly. MFC is a promising technology in the field of energy production. MFC is a promising technology in the field of energy production. MFC operates with the degradation of different types of wastes by generating various by-products. Proper design and operation of MFC help to get optimum output. The performance of MFC depends on appropriate electrode materials, substrates, pH and type of microbes grown. In MFC, microbial oxidation of natural wastes occurs at ambient temperature. The generated reaction produces energy.
