Microbial Fuel Cells are electrochemical reactors based on the metabolism of particular strains of microbes. A battery composed of seven microbial fuel cells has been realized, using glass bottles of 500 mL internal volume; solid organic waste, taken from an urban disposal site, has been employed as fuel, without any sort of pretreatment. Electric potential and current intensity have been monitored showing a very good performance of our Microbial Fuel Cell system.

Abstract

Microbial Fuel Cells are electrochemical reactors based on the metabolism of particular strains of microbes. A battery composed of seven microbial fuel cells has been realized, using glass bottles of 500 mL internal volume; solid organic waste, taken from an urban disposal site, has been employed as fuel, without any sort of pretreatment. Electric potential and current intensity have been monitored showing a very good performance of our Microbial Fuel Cell system.
