Electrogenicity assessment of Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus megaterium using Microbial Fuel Cell technology
Yoganathan K, Ganesh P
Microbial fuel cell technology is a new type of renewable and sustainable method for production of electric energy from the microbial breakdown of organic matter. The present study focuses on the isolation of Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus megaterium from soil sample and also aimed to construct the dual chambered mediator less microbial fuel cell for appraise the electricity producing ability of isolated Bacillus sp. Minimal media containing 5% and 10% glucose as carbon source used as substrate for bioelectricity production. The maximum current of 691 mV was produced from 10% of glucose as carbon source by Bacillus subtilis followed by Bacillus megaterium with power production of 651 mV.
