Effectiveness of microbial fuel cell in sustainable energy production during wastewater treatment: A mini review

Author(s):
Ankit Rawat and Shardul Shandilya
Abstract:
In recent years microbial fuel cells (MFCs) got much attention by developed countries as an alternate source of energy. Microbial Fuel Cells (MFCs) are alternate source of clean energy which combines wastewater treatment without emission of Greenhouse gases. Microbial activity is utilized by MFC for generation of low magnitude current, microbes consumes hydrocarbons present in wastewater as carbon source. This paper deals with basic idea about the mechanism of wastewater treatment, energy production and key components of MFCs application.
