Abstract

The effect of electrode material is performance a microbial fuel cells (MFC), which utilize urea in urine at the anode chamber and plain water at the cathode chamber have been demonstrated using different size for metal electrode and also different volume for urine sample. The combination of magnesium and copper produce a promising result which can be used for hardware development. The highest output power, voltage load and current are respectively 0.9 mW, 1.11 V and 0.89 mA. The output voltage of hardware will produce more than 3volts in series connection of 3 cells of the MFC. The output voltage of hardware at no load condition was producing 4.3 V in series connection of 3 cells of the MFC. The current flow with using a red LED as a load is 0.63 mA. These result demonstrate the type of electrode have important role on the efficiency of biological fuel cell.
