A review of constructed wetland coupled with microbial fuel cell: A recently emerged technology
Maitreyie Narayan, Praveen Solanki and RK Srivastava
Natural assets for freshwater generation and energy production are exhausting at an unprecedented rate. It was expected that two-thirds of the overall population will face water condition problems by 2025. Further than this, primary energy utilization will also increase by 37%. This harsh situation has trigger research into developing sustainable scientific technology for water recycling and renewable energy generation. Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) have got marvelous attention for their potential to boost the degradation of some unmanageable pollutants and simultaneous energy production. Constructed wetland-coupled microbial fuel cell systems (CW-MFCs) incorporate an aerobic zone and an anaerobic zone is a new device to treat the wastewater and to generate electricity. It has more wastewater treatment volume and easy in maintenance than others MFCs. Based on the available research this review aims to present an appropriate and newest ideas and features of CW-MFC while investigating research findings and future problems.
