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 ...
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, ...
Thermally-treated algal suspensions as fuel for microbial fuel cells
Three thermally-treated Chlorella vulgaris algal suspensions were fed to two-compartment microbial fuel cells (MFCs) for more than three months and performance was monitored in order to determine whether this type of fuel ...
Influence of the initial sludge characteristics and acclimation on the longterm performance of double-compartment acetate-fed microbial fuel cells
In this work, three double-compartment MFCs (DC-MFC) were operated for 1 month in order to compare their performances in terms of wastewater treatment capacity and electricity production and to get information about how ...
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 ...
