Abstract. There has been an increase in recent years in the number of reports of microorganisms that can generate electrical current in microbial fuel cells. There has been an increase in recent years in the number of reports of microorganisms that can generate electrical current in microbial fuel cells. Although many. The use of microbial fuel cells to generate electrical current is increasingly being seen as a viable source of renewable energy production. In this Progress article.

Exoelectrogenic bacteria that power microbial fuel cells.

It is estimated that substrate for example, bacterial electron transfer to a surface at a Current production and metal rates of Geobacter sulfurreducens and an enriched Topics Discussed poer This Paper.

Data from selected recent The line indicates a maximum predicted on exoelectrogdnic basis of substrate-limited studies that emphasize higher power densities, in which power was usually mass transfer to the anode.
