Abstract

Microbial fuel cell technology has the potential to help address two of society's biggest environmental challenges - how to deal with the vast quantities of organic waste that is produced and where to find clean, renewable energy. However, if microbial fuel cells are to find practical application, this technology needs to become more efficient and overcome obstacles such as cathode limitations.
