AbstractProton exchange membranes (PEMs) are typically used in two-chamber microbial fuel cells (MFCs) to separate the anode and cathode chambers while allowing protons to pass between the chambers However PEMs such as Nafion are not cost-effective To reduce the cost of MFCs we examined the performances of cellulose acetate microfiltration membranes in a two-chamber microbial fuel cell using acetate The internal resistance the maximum power density and the coulombic efficiency (CE) of the microfiltration membrane MFC (MMMFC) were 263 Omega 0 831 +/- 0 016W/m(2) and 38 5 +/- 3 5% respectively in a fed-batch mode while the corresponding values of the MFC using a PEM were 267 Omega 0 872 +/- 0 021 W/m(2) and 74 7 +/- 46% respectively We further used the MMMFC for poultry wastewater treatment The maximum power density of 0 746 +/- 0 024 W/m(2) and CE of 35 3 +/- 3 2% were achieved when the poultry wastewater containing 566 mg/L COD was used removing 81 6 +/- 66% of the COD These results demonstrate microfiltration membranes compared with PEMs have a similar internal resistance and reduce pH gradient across the membrane They parallel PEMs in maximum power density while CE is much lower due to the oxygen and substrate diffusion The MMMFC was effective for poultry wastewater treatment with high COD removal (C) 2010 Elsevier B V All rights reserved
