High strength bioethanol wastewater inoculated with single‐strain or binary consortium feeding air‐cathode microbial fuel cells

Bioethanol industries generate a large volume of high strength wastewater called vinasse. This study compares the performance of microbial fuel cells (MFCs), inoculated with a single‐strain or a

Bioelectricity Production from Various Feedstocks Using Pure Strain of Bacillus firmus

Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) are bio-electrochemical devices that exploit microorganisms for producing electricity from a variety of materials, including complex organic waste and renewable biomass.

Electricity generation by Pseudomonas aeruginosa ZH1 in microbial fuel cell using palm oil mill effluent

Microbial fuel cell (MFC) is a bioelectrochemical system that is recognised as a promising source of renewable energy. Electro-active bacteria are used to generate electricity in MFC, either as pure



Testing various food-industry wastes for electricity production in microbial fuel cell.

Power production in MFCs inoculated with Shewanella oneidensis MR‐1 or mixed cultures

Differences between power densities produced by pure and mixed cultures depend on the MFC architecture, with mixed cultures producing more power than MR‐1 MFCs even though their redox potential was less negative.

Electricity production from cellulose in a microbial fuel cell using a defined binary culture.

Electricity was generated from cellulose in an MFC using a defined coculture of the cellulolytic fermenter Clostridium cellulolyticsum and the electrochemically active Geobacter sulfurreducens and the main residual metabolites of the binary culture were hydrogen, acetate, and ethanol.

Electricity generation and treatment of paper recycling wastewater using a microbial fuel cell

Limits to treatment efficiencies with actual wastewaters caused by solution conductivity compared to laboratory experiments under more optimal conditions are demonstrated.

Simultaneous Cellulose Degradation and Electricity Production by Enterobacter cloacae in a Microbial Fuel Cell

These results demonstrate for the first time that it is possible to generate electricity from cellulose using a single bacterial strain without exogenous mediators.

Anodic biofilms in microbial fuel cells harbor low numbers of higher-power-producing bacteria than abundant genera

The results suggest that the numerical abundance of microorganisms in biofilm cannot be assumed a priori to correlate to capacities of these predominant species for high-power production, and detailed screening of bacterial biofilms may be needed to identify important strains capable of high- power generation for specific substrates.
