This study demonstrated electricity generation from rice straw without pretreatment in a two-chambered microbial fuel cell (MFC) inoculated with a mixed culture of cellulose-degrading bacteria (CDB). The power density reached 145 mW/m2 with an initial rice straw concentration of 1 g/L; while the coulombic efficiencies (CEs) ranged from 54.3 to 45.3%, corresponding to initial rice straw concentrations of 0.5-1 g/L. Stackable MFCs in series and parallel produced an open circuit voltage of 2.17 and 0.723 V, respectively, using hexacyanoferrate as the catholyte. The maximum power for serial connection of three stacked MFCs was 490 mW/m2 (0.5 mA). In parallelly stacked MFCs, the current levels were approximately 3-fold (1.5 mA) higher than those produced from the serial connection. These results demonstrated that electricity can be produced from rice straw by exploiting CDB as the biocatalyst. Thus, this method provides a promising way to utilize rice straw for bioenergy production.
