Bio-electrochemical systems (BES) have become increasingly popular in recent years because of their novel and environmentally friendly construction. They use the interaction of microorganisms and electrodes to transform organic matter into useful chemicals or energy. BESs are used in bioremediation, wastewater treatment, and energy production from organic waste. Their eco-friendliness highlights their current significance, potential for circular economy integration, and capacity to address environmental concerns. BES is now regarded as an exciting potential for sustainable biotechnology. In this paper, we explored the concept of Plant-Based Bioelectrochemical Structures (PLBES) and how they can be used for pollution control and power generation. MFC maximum voltage and power density PLBES achievements were identified. Aerated and Unarearted group's boron removal efficiencies were analyzed. The efficacies of removing various organic and inorganic pollutants and the factors that affect both were demonstrated. It was also discussed how Devices of bioelectric chemistry constructed around plants contribute to meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs encourage governments, corporations, and communities to work together to achieve sustainable development that balances human needs with environmental protection.
