  author={S. Kumar and R. K. Saket and Rejeesh C. Rajendran},
159 Abstract— This paper presents technological aspects, operating principle, and scientific applications of the microbial fuel cell (MFC). The MFC is a technology for the extraction of clean energy from biomass such as organic wastes; hence, comes under Green Energy Conversion System (GECS). The cell uses bacteria as biocatalysts to generate electricity by digesting biodegradable organics present in the organic waste material, through a catalytic reaction of microorganisms under an anaerobic… 


An Experimental Study of Microbial Fuel Cells for Electricity Generating: Performance Characterization and Capacity Improvement
This paper studies the electricity generating capacity of microbial fuel cells (MFCs). Unlike most of MFC research, which targets the long term goals of renewable energy production and wastewater
Selection of organisms for systems biology study of microbial electricity generation: a review
This review presents the perspective that in silico metabolic modelling based on genome-scale metabolic networks can be used for understanding the metabolisms of the anodic microorganisms and optimizes the performance of their metabolic networks for MFCs.
Bio Energy Production Using Carbon Based Electrodes in Double and Single Chamber Microbial Fuel Cells: A Review
The world’s climate is being gradually altered by the burning of fossil fuels; which increases carbon dioxide in the atmosphere enormously. In addition, the high consumption of fossil fuels may cause
Biofuel Cells Select for Microbial Consortia That Self-Mediate Electron Transfer
Enrichment by repeated transfer of a bacterial consortium harvested from the anode compartment of a biofuel cell in which glucose was used increased the output and selected organisms capable of mediating the electron transfer either by direct bacterial transfer or by excretion of redox components.
Challenges in microbial fuel cell development and operation
The main limiting factors of MFC operation are identified and suggestions are made to improve performance.
Microbial fuel cell-based biosensors for environmental monitoring: a review.
It is confirmed that MFC-based biosensors could be used as self-powered portable biosensing devices with great potential in long-term and remote environmental monitoring and monitoring of biochemical oxygen demand and toxicity in the environment.
