Using available resources, a dual chambered low cost microbial fuel cell was designed. Microbial fuel cell was tested for electricity production with microbial isolates like Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Pseudomonas pseudoalcaligenes using corn steep liquor as substrate. From the values recorded using a multimeter, it was observed that Pseudomonas aeruginosa was able to produce maximum electricity of I: 10.32 mA, V: 0.948 V, R: 91.88 W and P: 9.785 mW, at 45°C.
