A New carbon-based paint for low-cost cathodes and anodes in microbial fuel cells

Production of cost-effective Microbial Fuelcells is here demonstrated by the concomitant utilization of metallic anodes (AISI304 SS) and of commercial conductive carbon-based paints. Electrochemical and physico-chemical analyses demonstrate the potentialities and the drawbacks. Corrosion is prevented by the anaerobic conditions and the paint.

Production of cost-effective Microbial Fuelcells is here demonstrated by the concomitant utilization of metallic anodes (AISI304 SS) and of commercial conductive carbon-based paints. Electrochemical and physico-chemical analyses demonstrate the potentialities and the drawbacks. Corrosion is prevented by the anaerobic conditions and the paint. Power production is increased by the bacterial affinity for the carbonious surface. Although great attention must still be devoted to the electrode lifetime and real surface extension, the promising answer of these SCMFCs is here demonstrated.
