Use of soil isolate as an exoelectricigen in a dual chambered Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC)

Microbil Fuel cell is a bio-electrochemical fuel cell where the anode reaction is controlled by microorganisms. The work was carried out on different exoelectricigens and electrodes that could be more efficient and cheaper than the existing ones. A new soil isolate was used for this study to use as the anode respiratory bacteria and different electrodes were tried. The system showed an improved power generation when used the newly obtained organism with different electrodes.
