Microbial fuel cells (MFC) represents a promising alternative to carbon based energy sources. The study deals with the implementation of cast iron sponge as electrodes, aiming at increasing the exposed surface and thus the current density at the MFC anode. The positive results of using foam as electrode suggests interesting future developments of MFC–foam system: developing non-toxic high corrosion resistance material based foams and investigating the effect of different S/V ratios on the performances of MFC.
