Abstract

In Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC) technology, electrical energy is generated from organic matter using microorganisms that adhere to the electrode surface as an electrochemical catalyst. In this work, anaerobic sludge and garden compost leachate were used as microbial sources and organic matter from agro-industrial wastes was used as fuel to produce electricity. Substrate and inoculum selection was achieved in Electrochemical Cells (EC) and their combinations were then evaluated in MFC. Substrate concentration and operational temperature were evaluated in EC for optimal current density generation and maximal removal of Chemical Oxygen Demand.
