Power generation and nutrient removal by a microbial fuel cell assisted with an algae growth in cathode chamber were evaluated along with continuous measurements of dissolved oxygen (DO) at various light and temperature conditions. Under light/dark regime of 18/6 hrs, a sustainable voltage of 0.31 V was observed with sufficient DO in the dark period. However, maximum NH-N removal rate (22.7 mg/L.d) and removal percentage (95.5%) was observed with 12/12 light/dark regime. Voltage and nitrogen removal increased with higher photon flux density up to 92 µE m s, and the highest 0.35 V voltage and NH-N removal rate of 26.5 mg/L.d were obtained. A higher temperature condition was favorable to improve the performance of algae cathode MFCs, but no substantial influence was observed relatively (19-35 °C). This study suggests that algae-cathode MFCs could continuously generate sustainable power with nutrient removal at optimum light and temperature conditions.

The study of the generation and behavior of electrical charges in living organisms particularly the nervous system and the effects of electricity on living organsims.
Inorganic compounds that include a positively charged tetrahedral nitrogen (ammonium ion) as part of their structure. This class of compounds includes a broad variety of simple ammonium salts and derivatives.
Enumeration by direct count of viable, isolated bacterial, archaeal, or fungal CELLS or SPORES capable of growth on solid CULTURE MEDIA. Each colony (i.e., microbial colony-forming unit) represents the progeny of a single cell in the original inoculum. The method is used routinely by environmental microbiologists for quantifying organisms in AIR; FOOD; and WATER; by clinicians for measuring patients' microbial load; and in antimicrobial drug testing.
The hydroxy salt of ammonium ion. It is formed when AMMONIA reacts with water molecules in solution.
Derivatives of ammonium compounds, NH4+ Y-, in which all four of the hydrogens bonded to nitrogen have been replaced with hydrocarbyl groups. These are distinguished from IMINES which are RN=CR2.
