Moisture content which affects the decomposition of organic material is one of composting parameters. The optimum moisture content indicates the higher power generation. This research aims to determine the optimum moisture content toward power density during the composting process in DGACSMFCs. The reactor was designed with dual graphene anode placed on the base and a half of reactor height in 2 L effective volume. Moisture content was varied at 40%; 50%; 60%; with 4 turning frequency, C/N ratio 30:1, and the mixed waste-leaves litter and canteen based food waste, during 23 days of the observation time. Other parameters of the composting process such as pH, temperature, C-Organic, N-Total, P-Total, and K-Total were also observed as control parameters. The result shows that the optimum moisture content is 60% with power density 17.74 mW/m2, and the final compost characteristics are meet the compost requirement based on SNI 19-7030-2004 about the specification of compost from domestic waste..
Key words: moisture content / power density / compost requirement / dual graphene anode / DGACSMFCs
