Electricity generation from carbon monoxide and synthesis gas in a microbial fuel cell

Authors: Hussain, A
Description: Synthesis gas (syngas) is a major building block in the production of gaseous and liquid energy carriers. Syngas is also often utilized for electricity generation through internal combustion engines, but the low efficiency of this system is a major drawback of the process. Direct conversion of syngas to electricity in conventional fuel cells (CFCs) offers a more efficient and cleaner process for electricity generation however the CFCs are sensitive to changes in syngas composition and fuel impurities such as sulphur. As an alternative, syngas can be converted to electricity in a microbial fuel cell (MFC). Feeding CO and syngas to an MFC inoculated with an anaerobic sludge and operated under 35
