A. Jasmine, N. Rexon Liso, S. Sahaya Lismen Rai, S. Linsin Bedso
Recently, microbial fuel cells (MFCs) have received much attention due to their mild operating conditions and various biodegradable substrates as fuel. A traditional MFC consists of an anode and a cathode compartment, but single-chamber MFCs exist. Microorganisms actively catabolize the substrate, and bioelectricity is generated. MFCs could be used as a power generator in small devices such as biosensors. In addition to the advantages of this technology, it still faces practical obstacles such as low power and current density. In this paper, various parts of MFC, such as anode, cathode, and membrane, have been reviewed, and some practical options have been proposed to overcome the practical problems in this area. This research review also demonstrates the improvement of MFCs with a summary of their advantages and possible applications in future applications. Various vital factors affecting bioelectricity generation on MFCs have also been investigated, and these critical parameters are thoroughly discussed.
