Continuous microbial fuel cells convert carbohydrates to electricity



Continuous microbial fuel cells convert carbohydrates to electricity



Water Science and Technology 52(1-2): 515-523



Microbial fuel cells which are operated in continuous mode are more suitable for practical applications than fed batch ones. Three influent types containing carbohydrates were tested, i.e. a glucose medium, a plant extract and artificial wastewater. The anode reactor compartment yielding the best results was a packed bed reactor containing graphite granules.
