Experimental Study on Enhanced Denitrification of Microbial and Steel Fuel Cell
Constructed a two-chambered microbial fuel cell (MFC) and a similar abiotic fuel Cell----Steel fuel cell (SFC), studies the influence of elimination effect about various variables (anode material , size of salt bridge and so on) to the nitrate. The experiment indicated that the elimination efficiency of MFC to the nitrate is 71.46% equally, SFC is 67.99%, and degeneration speed of nitrate is 8mg nitrate/L/day approximately. It has confirmed that MFC and SFC is one highly effective method on elimination nitrate, and the elimination effect of MFC to nitrate is better than SFC.
