Potential of Biomass for Electricity Generation Using Environment-Friendly MFC


MFC had advantages over the conventional treatment of wastewater regarding nature of converting chemical energy into bio-electricity generation. The study was made for treatment of algal biomass in MFC for electricity generation. The present study deals with the utilization of sewage sludge, which contains a high level of readily biodegradable bio waste and is also one of the major sources of environmental pollution, as a substrate in MFC. Saccharomyces cerevisiae used biocatalyst and potassium ferricyanide as an oxidizer were utilized for the conversion of sewage sludge into voltage utilizing dual chambered MFC. A maximum of the voltage of 0.9-1.0 V was obtained per liter of the sludge with the cathode in continuous mode and the anode in batch feed mode of operation.
