|Title||Employing Laccase-Producing Aspergillus sydowii NYKA 510 as a Cathodic Biocatalyst in Self-Sufficient Lighting Microbial Fuel Cell|
J. Microbiol. Biotechnol.2019 ;
|Abstract||In the present work, we isolated and identified Aspergillus sydowii NYKA 510 as the most
potent laccase producer. Its medium constituents were optimized to produce the highest
possible amount of laccase, which was after 7 days at 31oC and pH 5.2. Banana peel and
peptone excelled in inducing laccase production at concentrations of 15.1 and 2.60 g/l,
respectively. Addition of copper sulfate elevated enzyme yield to 145%. The fungus was
employed in a microbial fuel cell (MFC). The best performance was obtained at 2000 Ω
achieving 0.76 V, 380 mAm-2, 160 mWm-2, and 0.4 W. A project to design a self-sufficient
lighting unit was implemented by employing a system of 2 sets of 4 MFCs each, connected in
series, for electricity generation. A scanning electron microscopy image of A. sydowii NYKA
510 was utilized in algorithmic form generation equations for the design. The mixed
patterning and patterned customized mass approach were developed by the authors and
chosen for application in the design.|
