A sequential anode-cathode double-chamber microbial fuel cell (MFC) was constructed for the production of electricity using a novel microorganism, Clostridium sporogenes NCIM 5125 which is profoundly known to be a part of MFC studies. The growth of the microorganism was supported by energy derived from the electron transfer process itself and results in stable, long term power production. The electricity generation was optimized by analyzing the growth of the microbe at different parameters using mediated and non-mediated MFC. The results suggested that it is feasible to generate more electricity amounting to 5.6 mA at 160th h with the adopted C. sporogenes using mediated MFC.
