Microbial fuel cells are system that provide wastewater treatment and electricity generation through

exoelectrogen bacteria. The development of these systems also provide benefits such as resource

recovery through bioelectrochemical remediation. Microbial fuel cells are used for various purposes

such as wastewater treatment, electricity generation, energy conservation and energy conversion. It can

be said that microbial fuel cells are one of the most emphasized alternative energy sources recently.

While energy is consumed in the conventional wastewater treatment systems, energy is produced in

microbial fuel cells with wastewater treatment. These systems are recognized as a promising technology

to solve both environmental problems and energy needs. This study, it is aimed to reveal the effect of

the performance parameters of microbial fuel cells. It is clear that with the development of these

parameters, high power efficiency will be obtained in the future studies.
