Microbial fuel cell (MFC) is a suitable device for biological wastewater treatment that can use different types of wastewater and simultaneously generate electricity in addition to pollutants removal. One of the factors affecting system performance is MFC structure and configuration. Air cathode MFCs have recently received much attention due to their unlimited access to oxygen and low space between electrodes. In this research, a new design of single chamber air cathode MFC will fabricate using a novel design without the presence of a proton exchange membrane (PEM) and its performance will study in the field of bioelectricity production and wastewater treatment. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), cyclic voltammetry (CV) and linear sweep voltammetry (LSV) will investigate.
