Single chamber membrane-free microbial electrolysis cell (MEC) was operated for the assessment of exoelectrogenic bacteria (EB) growth at carbon felt anode and resultant hydrogen (H2) production at abiotic cathodes, made using cold rolling (VITO-CoRE™) and casting (VITO-CASE™) methods. Progressive enrichment of EB was observed on anode during 70 days of operation at an applied potential of +0.2V vs Ag/AgCl, and a maximum current density (CD) of 330.59 mA/m(2) (1.38 mA) was recorded.
