Abstract—Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) are promising clean energy sources for simultaneous recycling of organic waste while harvesting electricity. As for the different effects of electrode materials on the power performance of MFCs, a new material of electrode, carbon nanotube/polyaniline carbon paper (CNT/PANI carbon paper) was utilized and compared with other traditional carbon paper/cloth in this study. Results show that a lower ohmic loss and a better power performance were executed by using CNT/PANI carbon paper. These findings further exhibit its feasibility to improvement of power performance in MFCs.

Index Terms—Electrode, microbial fuel cells, carbon nanotube / polyaniline carbon paper.
