Comparison of Graphite Electrode Types on Generation of Bioelectricity from Petha Industry Wastewater Using Single Chamber Microbial Fuel Cells (SCMFC)
Wastewater generated during the processing of the petha sweet is mainly used to wash the raw petha (Benincasa hispida). Production of electricity and the treatment of wastewater generated from the petha industry units were investigated using SCMFC. Pencil cell electrode taken from pencil cell and graphite paper electrode fabricated in the lab were used. It was found that MFC with one graphite paper electrode and one pencil electrode was the best combination and generated 648 mV. Presence of active species was predicted using cyclic voltammetry. SEM analysis was also done and a regular network was seen. Production of hydrogen, a green fuel, was also monitored.
