Abstract

In this review a brief description is given for the biofuel cells along with their classification. The review is mainly intended to concentrate on microbial fuel cells (MFCs) where micro-organisms are used to convert the fuel to electrical energy and also this review gives an overview of the advances made in the past two years in MFCs in terms of their research, development and performance. Some researchers have uncovered the greatest value of MFC technology and which may not be used for the large scale production of electricity, however, they have demonstrated their ability to degrade wastes and toxic chemicals in a greener way. Various approaches on further development to overcome the current challenges in MFCs have been reviewed. This innovative technology will have a major impact and benefit in medical science, clinical research and energy production from renewable sources
