  • Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) are a unique technology that takes advantage of bacterial metabolism to generate electricity and remove chemical oxygen demand (COD) from organic pollutants. Existence of heavy metals in fuel affects vitally bacterial activity in MFC. Present study aimed to define the negative effect of three most toxic heavy metals, namely mercury (HgCl2), lead (Pb(NO3)2), and cadmium (CdCl2), on the activity of bacterium Shewanella putrefaciens with respect to electricity… CONTINUE READING
