Abstract A microbial fuel cell (MFC) is a novel biotechnological system able to simultaneously produce renewable energy and perform wastewater treatment. The aim of this work was to study the effect of configurational parameters, such as membrane area, anode electrode size and cell design and operating conditions, such as flow rate and shear stress on the MFC performance toward its optimization. A synthetic wastewater based on a dairy industry effluent and pure culture of Lactobacillus pentosus… CONTINUE READING
