Abstract:Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) are devices that can be used to convert chemical energy stored in biodegradable materials into electrical energy. Sustainable energy recovery from organic wastes is gaining a research interest from last few years. The microbial fuel cell will be cost-effective technology if replace costlier proton exchange membrane with the cheapest alternative. Hence, the performance of MFCs was evaluated using soil partition as an alternative to proton exchange membrane. Performance of six microbial fuel cells (MFCs) was investigated in terms of current, columbic efficiency and chemical oxygen demand removal efficiency under the batch mode of operation using aerated distilled water as a cathodic electrolyte. Effect of permeability, a surface area of partition, ambient temperature variation and substrate concentration were evaluated. It was observed that current and coulombic efficiency increases with increase in surface area and permeability of partition wall. It was observed that ambient temperature plays the vital role in energy harvesting and treatment efficiency.
