Özet

Microbial fuel cell (MFC) has the potential to be an alternative pretreatment method to divert organic fraction of municipal solid waste (OFMWS) from landfilling while sustainable, clean and renewable energy can be obtained during organic matter removal. Thus searching for optimal conditions to achieve more energy and organic removal is critical for the practical application of MFCs. Herein, an approach investigating the temperature effect on reactor performance and waste treatment was adopted to address the question using a tubular MFC.
