Silicone-immobilized sludge generates hydrogen

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Researchers at Taiwan's National Cheng Kung University have achieved a high rate of microbial hydrogen production from sucrose using a bioreactor seeded with silicone-immobilized sludge. They operated the continuously stirred anaerobic reactor at a hydraulic retention time of 0.5 hours to 6 hours and influent solution containing 10 g/L to 40 g/L of sucrose. Best yield was 3.5 mol of hydrogen per mol of sucrose, a very high rate.
