Biological fuel cells, microbes, plants.
Excessive use of fossil fuels causes a change in the climate cycle due to the accumulation of CO2 and CO emissions. The use of alternative energy from renewable energy sources becomes the main objective to reduce the positions of fossil fuel consumption. Biological fuel cells or microbial fuel cells are power plants that take advantage of the breakdown activity of organic substrates by microbes. Biological fuel cells are still little used as conventional power plants because it takes a long time to meet the needs of everyday energy. The density of the power can be increased by continuously substrate the anodic region, one of which can be done by utilizing the secretory system of some of the photosynthetic products in living plants. The use of ornamental plants sansevieria golden hahnii as a biomass-producing medium of organic exudate can produce power reaches 145.02 W / m2 in one day.
