Abstract

A two-chamber microbial fuel cell (anaerobic anode chamber and air-sparged cathode chamber) was designed and built in our laboratory where carbon fibres were used as electrodes and Nafion 0125 protonselective membrane was placed between the two cells. Anaerobic sludge from a local biogas plant was applied in the anode chamber and various substrates were used to study the operation of the system and to measure the electric power generated.
