Abstract
Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) are a promising technology to treat wastewater while recovering bioenergy and have been studied to remove carbon and nitrogen. Electrons generated at the anode from the oxidation of organic electron donors are used to reduce nitrate at the cathode, and these processes produce power. In this study, a two-chamber MFC that coupled an anode chamber and biocathode chamber was investigated to remove ethanolamine and nitrate. We developed an MFC in which micro-organisms at the cathode performed complete denitrification using electrons supplied by ethanolamine oxidation at the anode. The biocathode MFC produced a maximum power density of 8.41 W/m(3) with a corresponding current and cell voltage of 2.9 mA and 170 mV, respectively. This research demonstrates that an MFC with both a biological anode and cathode simultaneously removed ethanolamine, produced power, and denitrified. Results from this study indicate that ethanolamine might be a suitable resource for generating electricity with MFC technology.
