Aims and Background The plant microbial fuel cell (Plant-MFC) can generate electricity in a clean, renew able, sustainable and efficient manner (Strik, 2008). The plant provides electron donors as rhizodeposits to a microbial community including electrochemically active bacteria ( EAB) w hich use the anode electrode as final electron acceptor (Rothballer, 2011). The anode electrode functions as an alternative electron acceptor in the rhizosphere. EAB compete w ith the microbial community that… CONTINUE READING
