Abstract

A microbial fuel cell (MFC) intergrated with adsorption system (MFC-AHS) are tested under various operating tempartures with palm oil mill effluent (POME) as the substrate. The optimum operating temperature for such system is found to be at ∼ 35°C with current, power density, internal resistance (Rin), coulombic efficiency (CE) and maximum chemical oxygen demand (COD) removal of 2.51 ± 0.2 mA, 74 ± 6 mW m(-3), 25.4 Ω, 10.65 ± 0.5% and 93.57 ± 1.2%, respectively. Maximum current density increase linearly with temperature at a rate of 0.1772 mA m(-2) °C(-1) whereas maximum power density was in a polynomial function. The temperature coefficient (Q10) is found to be 1.20 between 15°C and 35°C. Present studies has demonstrated better CE performance as compared to other MFC-AHSs. Generally, MFC-AHS has demonstrated higher COD removals as compared to standalone MFC regardless of operating temperatures.
