Bioelectricity Production through PMFC using Bryophyllum Pinnatum in Association with Microbes

S. Shenbagavalli | J. Caroline Rose [2]


Abstract: Natural resources such as oil may get depleted due to the exploitation of natural resources and so human has to find an alternate source of energy for the survival. As a result, various kinds of discoveries and ideas for developing greener and more efficient energy producing methods are progressively being mentioned around the world. A Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC) is capable of generating electricity directly from a large variety of organic or inorganic compounds, using a microbe as a catalyst. A plant microbial fuel cell (PMFC), a biological cell that converts the solar energy into the bioelectricity with an aid of the microbes at the rhizosphere region of plant, seems to be an emergent source of sustainable energy. In thisstudy Azotobacter was chosen to influence the increase in electricity production. The parameter for study is Variation in pH, Variation of voltage with time, Variation of voltage in difference in solar radiation, Variation of voltage influence of temperature. PMFC with and without Acetobacter was analysed. The performance of the PMFCs was then compared to MFC. This study reports on the use of Bryophyllum sp in PMFC.
