A microbial fuel cell was fed with anoxic groundwater from a field site contaminated with benzene and sulfide. Monitoring of power generation demonstrated that groundwater microorganisms utilized the anode as an artificial electron acceptor for benzene and sulfide removal. Furthermore, the degradation process underlying benzene removal and the anodic microbial community were investigated using stable isotope tools and pyrosequencing of 16S rRNA genes, respectively.
