Hydrogen production by thermophilic fermentation

Abstract
Of the many ways hydrogen can be produced, this chapter focuses on biological hydrogen production

12 by thermophilic bacteria and archaea in dark fermentations. The thermophiles are held as promising candidates

13 for a cost-effective fermentation process, because of their relatively high yields and broad substrate palette. Yet

14 many challenges remain to be faced, including improving productivity, tolerance to high osmolality and growth

15 inhibitors, and reactor configuration. This review consolidates current insights in the quest for high yields and

16 productivities within thermophilic hydrogen production. Important is to understand how environmental

17 parameters affect the redox-... (More)
