Different Methods of Biohydrogen Production

Many microorganisms produce hydrogen as their byproduct during anaerobic fermentation processes. Some microorganisms like green algae, cyanobecteria produce enzymes to convert water into hydrogen in the presence of thermal energy source such as sunlight. This process is known as photobiological process. In biological hydrogen production process, hydrogen formation and consumption are

■ Natural gas

■ Hydrocarbons Coal

■ Electrolysis

■ Biomass

uncoupled, so that hydrogen is available as the final product (Reith et al. 2003). There are various biological methods available for hydrogen production. Table 12.1 gives an overview of biological hydrogen production process, which is being explored in fundamental and applied research.
