Book Description :

"Microbial fuel cell (MFC) studies are often conducted using liquid-phase carbon sources because of the simplicity of carbon delivery. Therefore, MFC studies dedicated to solid-phase carbon sources are still limited. Notwithstanding, solid organic waste can lead to environmental concerns associated with solid waste management and greenhouse gas emissions. This thesis focuses on solid-phase carbon sources from kitchen waste, soil, and living plants as a source of carbon for MFCs.The first study investigated bioelectricity production using kitchen waste in compost MFC (CMFC) treated with different C/N ratios and salinities. CMFC of lower C/N ratio (C/N 24) under non-saline conditions produced the highest bioelectricity. Further, adding 10 g/L of NaCl did not improve power production.Based on established understandings that salinity can be detrimental to power production and that power performance of MFCs depends on the carbon source, the second study investigated bioelectricity production using weeping alkaligrass (Puccinellia distans), a salt-tolerant grass, in potting mix or sandy loam soil at different salinities. The performance of plant MFC (PMFC) was compared to soil MFC (SMFC). Both PMFC and SMFC performance was best at a salinity level of 6 g/L of NaCl. The bioelectricity production in PMFC with potting mix was higher compared to bioelectricity production in PMFC with sandy loam soil. The presence of alkaligrass in MFCs increased bioelectricity production by 14-fold. Experiments under different photoperiod conditions (24/0 h, 16/8 h, 9/15 h, 0/24 h) have shown that bioelectricity production declined in shorter photoperiods and was affected by frequent changes during the photoperiods test.iiMajor challenges to implementing MFC technology include the cost of electrode materials. The use of low-cost material like biochar has been studied in the past. Hence, the third study was dedicated to understanding the effects of biochar application on the production of bioelectricity, methane, and plant biomass. This work examined the potential of using biochar as an alternative anode to the standard carbon felt anode in SMFC and PMFC with rice (Oryza sativa) and alkaligrass. Over 125 days, the highest bioelectricity production was obtained from rice PMFC, followed by alkaligrass PMFC, and SMFC. The bioelectricity production of MFCs with biochar anodes was between 16-75% of the bioelectricity production of MFCs with carbon felt anodes. Methane emissions of MFCs with biochar anodes were found to be lower than those of MFCs with carbon felt anodes. In brief, biochar is promising for bioelectricity production and for reducing methane emissions without significantly decreasing plant biomass yield.Understanding temporal trends in a particular research area and broadening research networks are necessary for integrated research efforts. The final study, therefore, focused on bibliometric analysis to evaluate global research trends in the MFC field. Interest in MFC has been growing rapidly since 2008. Researchers from China and the USA have contributed 60% of total publications globally, leading 70 other countries. Progress in MFC research encompasses material science, nanotechnology, ceramics, biochar, artificial neural networks, and economics assessment." --
