Review on Engineering of Fermentative Bio-Hydrogen Production


Article Preview

The paper not only reviews the progress of engineering and application on bio-hydrogen production, but also discusses characteristics, advantages and disadvantages of biological hydrogen production systems. Meanwhile, it mainly analyzes anaerobic fermentative bio-hydrogen production systems’ technological schemes, design strategies, engineering control parameters, fermentation control, fuel cell, technical means to increase hydrogen evolution and its rate. Under the guidance of the theory of ethanol-type fermentation, the fermentative bio-hydrogen production systems have been established in practice.
