With the development of industrial revolution environmental pollution greatly affected by various pollutants emitted from industries. A part from this energy requirement also increased due to growing civilization. Ethanol is one of the future fuel that is produced from sugar cane molasses. During distillation of alcohol waste water also drawn off, this waste water contain many organic matter. Microbial fuel cell (MFC) is one of the major source for treating waste water and generating electricity. This study deals with electricity generation from distillery waste and factor affecting salt bridge used for proton transfer. The maximum voltage and electricity generation was seen at 10% agarose,1 M Kcl, 1 M NaCl, 5 cm length and 1cm diameter of salt bridge about 0.67 mv and  0.0642 mA.
