In this Anode study, chestnut shell is proposed as a novel anode material with mesoporous and microporous structure prepared Microbial fuel cells via a simple carbonization procedure followed by an activation process. The chemical activation process suc- Activation cessfully modiﬁed the macroporous structure, created more mesoporous and microporous structure and de- Power generation creased the O−content and pyridinic/pyrrolic N groups on the biomass anode, which were beneﬁcial for im- proving charge transfer eﬃciency between the anode surface and microbial
