Waste water generation from municipal and domestic sources have negative effects on man and his environment especially when they are disposed into areas without proper treatment due to high cost of treatment. This causes serious public-health concerns on both aquatic habitat resulting in the death of aquatic animals and plants and this will in turn result in economic consequences. Bioelectricity generation using the technology of Microbial Fuel Cell technology offers a cost-effective way to treat wastewater. Mr Egbadon Emmanuel’s research is centered on ways to better exploit microorganism to treat wastewater and also generate electricity, by exploiting ways through which microbes can increase in biomass and biofilm formation and also exploit ways to increase exflux of electrons from microorganisms to electrode surfaces. Mr. Egbadon Emmanuel believes that in the near future the technology of Microbial fuel cell will serve to provide better, cost-effective ways of treating different wastewater and possibly as a source of cheap electricity.
