Biological hydrogen production from lignocellulosic biomass

Abstract
Biologically derived hydrogen (biohydrogen) from lignocellulosic biomass has the potential to be an ideal renewable fuel as its combustion does not produce carbon-based emissions and it can be derived from sources which do not affect food production. Moreover, the by-products of biohydrogen production can be fed to an anaerobic digester producing biogas. Thus, a two-step process involving biohydrogen production followed by biogas production is emerging as a viable option for conversion of lignocellulosic biomass. Essential aspects of designing a viable hydrogen production system such as biomass selection, inhibitory compounds in the biomass, removal and salvage of hydrogen and the desirable qualities in any hydrogen producing organism are...
