Electricity is the basis for the development of all humanity, moving the economy and being part of our daily life, unbridled consumption of electricity around the world, ends up making the continuous use of natural resources, making them increasingly scarce. This situation has led to numerous studies and research into finding alternatives for sustainability and clean energy generation. The objective was to highlight the use of microbial fuel cells in bacteria such as Geobacter sulfurreducens and Bacillus Subtilis with automotive lubricating oil as a way to generate clean electrical energy. The methodology used was the quantitative and qualitative bibliographic research in the main platforms of scientific journals, having as a selection criterion the period from 2015 to 2019. It can be concluded that studies involving these possibilities are capable of bringing great impacts, especially in the case respect for the preservation of the environment and the reduction of the use of natural resources.
