A Critical View of Microbial Fuel Cells: What Is the Next Stage?
Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) have garnered interest from the scientific community since the beginning of this century and this has caused a considerable increase in the scientific production of MFCs. However, the ability ...
Biofilm and planktonic population distribution. Key aspects in carbonaceous anodes for microbial fuel cells
BACKGROUND A comparison between different carbon-based anodes used in microbial fuel cells (MFCs) has been carried out. Five different carbonaceous anodes were studied: carbon paper, carbon cloth, carbon foam 30 ppi, ...
Development of a module of stacks of air-breathing microbial fuel cells to light-up a strip of LEDs
This work focuses on scaling-up of the microbial fuel cells technology according to the principle of miniaturization and multiplication. Seven stacks of 16 mini-MFCs (electrodic area of 0.866 cm2) were built up leading to ...
Driving force of the better performance of metal-doped carbonaceous anodes in microbial fuel cells
A comparison between different metal-doped carbonaceous anodes for air-breathing microbial fuel cells (MFCs) has been carried out in this work. In order to do that, the surface of carbon paper anodes were modified with Pt, ...
On the staking of miniaturized air-breathing microbial fuel cells
This work focuses on the scale-up of the MFCs by miniaturization and multiplication strategy. Performances of five stacks containing 1, 2, 5, 8 and 16 MFCs were compared. Each stack was evaluated under individual, parallel ...
