Abstract

A REVIEW ON THE EFFECT OF CONDUCTIVITY ON THE PERFORMANCE OF MICROBIAL FUEL CELLS

M. B. Dambatta, N. A. Garba* and L. Saadu

ABSTRACT

Currently, there is limited information about the factors that affect the power generation of microbial fuel cells (MFCs) using soil organic matter, sewage sludge, marine sediment, garden compost, industrial and domestic waste, and animal waste as fuel sources. However, a number of scientists have worked on some factors with the view of knowing their effect on the microbial fuel generation from the aforementioned organic matters. This review provides an overview of the effect of conductivity on the performance of MFC and the different salt used in enhancing MFCs conductivity. Different sodium salts have been found to enhance the performance of MFC. Sodium chloride (NaCl) salt, which is readily available at cheap price can be used to improve the performance of different MFCs.
