A unique type of fuel cell with a potential in long-term is the bio fuel. The data obtained from the studies undertaken reflect glucose yielding the peak voltage. However, sucrose is cheap, similar to glucose in the electricity production pattern. Using glucose in anaerobic culture conditions, the microbial fuel cell produced a peak voltage of 1.35 by organisms Saccharomyces cerevisiae but different current obtained were 1.9 and 2.5 mA respectively, and the catalyst was shown to affect the duration of the peak but not the peak voltage, ultimately, providing new insights for industrial waste recycling for an ongoing pursuit of the most productive microbial fuel cells.

Abstract


A unique type of fuel cell with a potential in long-term is the bio fuel. The data obtained from the studies undertaken reflect glucose yielding the peak voltage. However, sucrose is cheap, similar to glucose in the electricity production pattern. Using glucose in anaerobic culture conditions, the microbial fuel cell produced a peak voltage of 1.35 by organisms Saccharomyces cerevisiae but different current obtained were 1.9 and 2.5 mA respectively, and the catalyst was shown to affect the duration of the peak but not the peak voltage, ultimately, providing new insights for industrial waste recycling for an ongoing pursuit of the most productive microbial fuel cells.
