Abstract

Microbial fuel cells (CCMs) are a promising technology for treating wastewater and generating bioelectricity at the same time. This research was based on the manufacture of CCMs single chamber on a laboratory scale; using as fuel wastewater (ARs) and copper and zinc metal electrodes. Being able to generate peak values of 0.349 ± 0.21 V and 254.3 ± 3.23 µA of voltage and current respectively. The monitoring of the CCMs showed that the ARs showed an alkaline pH and conductivity values greater than 70 mS/cm, after 15 days. The maximum power density was 1.67 ± 0.33 W/cm2 at 393.08 mA/cm2 of current density and the FTIR spectra of the initial and final ARs showed the abrupt decrease of the intensity peaks of the polysaccharides, alkanes, NH and OH. These results demonstrated the usefulness of the design of single chamber CCMs for the production of bioelectricity, providing an eco-friendly solution with the environment and society.
