The application of microbial fuel cell (MFC) for electricity generation has been developing recently. This research explores the application of single chamber MFC in generating electricity using paper wastewater .The different concentration of wastewater has been performed. The maximum current, voltage, BOD, COD, pH and TDS obtained with respect to time. MFC of paper mill wastewater showed removal efficiency 68.1% COD, 67.3% BOD and 56.6% TDS with different feed concentration. The current, voltage and power generation in the reactor is 1.40mA, 1.24 V and 0.46 watts/m2 respectively.
