Anaerobic fluidized bed microbial fuel cell (AFBMFC) was developed to investigate the effect of fluidization behaviors on the electrogenesis capacity. Waste water and active carbon were used as liquid and solid phase, respectively. The fuel cell was started up successfully using anaerobic activated sludge as inoculums. The power density is increased with increasing circular liquid velocity up to 450 mW·m-2. High COD remove rate reached 93% after five days operation. Meanwhile, the effects of cathode area on the electrogenesis capacity of AFB MFC were also investigated.
