ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE OF MICROBIAL FUEL CELL BASED LIVE SLUDGE FOR VOLTAGE PRODUCTION AND CONGO RED DYE REMOVAL
In this work, Single chamber Microbial fuel cells (SCMFCs) are a versatile technology is depending on the interaction mechanisms of bacteria, to produce bioelectricity simultaneously and treat Congo red (CR) dye from aqueous solution at different pH (6.5-8). Electricity generation from the biodegradable organic substrate (sucrose) accompanied by decolorization of azo dye was investigated in the batch test results showed that more than 99% decolorization demonstrated at UV-Visible Spectrophotometer (500 nm) was achieved within 20 days and maximum output voltage (889 mv) had been obtained in an open circuit at a pH value of 7.5. Microbial community analysis showed that species in live sludge and the impact of bacteria grown on removal and voltage.
