Since MFC degrades simple carbohydrates i.e. glucose, acetate, and butyrate, and countless organic substances such as pig wastewater, domestic wastewater, and manure sludge waste, the biochemical energy generated by the catalytic reactions of microorganisms and converts the waste produced into energy. It promises a sustainable wastewater treatment to balance the operating cost. This chapter is a review of the advantages of microbial fuel cell treatment of food industry wastewater, which creates high organic pollution in the industrial field.

Keywords: Food industry wastewater, Industrial wastewater treatment, Microbial fuel cell.
