Microbial fuel cells (mfcs) have a significant benefit in producing energy using environmentally-friendly and renewable means mcfs can accept and convert waste products, such biomass. The microbial fuel cell technology, which is also inside the 'pee power' urinals developed at the university of the west of england (uwe bristol), now has the capacity to power up and recharge a. To most microbial fuel cell would seem like something that is new to the world but the idea of utilizing microbes to produce energy was brought to the world in the early 1900s by professor m c potter.
Fuel cells are a novel addition to the inventory of alternate energy sources having minimal or no net-co2 emission electricity production using microbial cultures was first reported early in the last. Mediator-free microbial fuel cells do not require a mediator but uses electrochemically active bacteria to transfer electrons to the electrode (electrons are carried directly from the bacterial respiratory. A microbial fuel cell (mfc) converts chemical energy to electrical energy by the catalytic reactions of micro organisms when a micro organism goes through anaerobic metabolism ie.
