  Article:   CONSTRUCTION AND CHARACTERISATION OF A MICROBIAL FUEL CELL WITH SOIL MICROORGANISMS.

  Abstract:  Microbial fuel cells are based on the ability of microorganisms to produce energy through biomass degradation. This study presents the construction, electrical characterization and possible applications of a type of MFC with microorganisms from soil. Although the obtained power density is low compared to other authors (1W/m3, respectively 500mA/m2), the proposed construction is very simple, without moving parts, chemical substances or external electrical energy consumption. Possible applications of this type of MFC are presented: sodium acetate aqueous solution sensor and electrical energy source in isolated areas.

Keywords: microbial fuel cell, soil microorganisms, power density, miniaturised MFC
