Abstract

Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC) technology is an efficient technology which has a practical aspect of conversion of chemical energy in organic compounds directly to electrical energy through degradative activities of microorganisms. MFCs can be used in wastewater treatment plants with simultaneous generation of electricity. A lot of research has already been done and different types of MFCs have been constructed which have varied applications in addition to electricity generation. This article presents a short review on MFCs stating its working, types and applications with broader view on wastewater treatment.
