In this paper, we investigated on simultaneous electric energy production and organic matter was removed from synthetic wastewater by Microbial Fuel Cells (MFCs). Single chamber MFCs was made up by Haplusterts great group soil (Samo - Thod soil group) in trial design 3 x 3 factorial design in Completely Randomize Design (CRD) which 3 levels synthetic wastewater; 0, 200 and 400 mg/l of glucose and 3 levels of flooding time: 1, 3 and 5 days. The results showed the interaction significant with decreasing sugar from synthesis wastewater and Open Circuit Voltage (OCV). The maximum OCV of 200 and 400 mg/l of glucose in 3 flooding days were 131 and 142 mV and decreasing to 110 and 126 mV in 5 flooding days, respectively. The highest percent of decreased glucose approached to 80% in 5 flooding days of 0.4 g/l of glucose. The findings suggested that not only MFCs were a significantly to reduce organic matter in wastewater but also generated electric energy in the same time.
