Improving the yield from fermentative hydrogen production
Efforts to increase H2 yields from fermentative H2 production include heat treatment of the inoculum, dissolved gas removal, and varying the organic loading rate. Although heat treatment killsExpand

Continuous fermentative hydrogen production using a two-phase reactor system with recycle.
The effects of effluent recycle were examined in a two-phase anaerobic system where the first phase was operated for fermentative hydrogen production and the second for methanogenesis. The hydrogenExpand

Supersaturation of Dissolved H2 and CO2 During Fermentative Hydrogen Production with N2 Sparging
Dissolved H2 and CO2 were measured by an improved manual headspace-gas chromatographic method during fermentative H2 production with N2 sparging. Sparging increased the yield from 1.3 to 1.8 molExpand

Optimisation and design of nitrogen-sparged fermentative hydrogen production bioreactors
Abstract The optimisation of nitrogen sparging during fermentative hydrogen production was investigated. A N 2 sparging rate of 12 mL/min/L-liquid was observed to maximise the H 2 yield atExpand

Supersaturation of dissolved H(2) and CO (2) during fermentative hydrogen production with N(2) sparging.
Dissolved H(2) and CO(2) were measured by an improved manual headspace-gas chromatographic method during fermentative H(2) production with N(2) sparging. Sparging increased the yield from 1.3 to 1.8Expand

A practitioner's perspective on the application and research needs of membrane bioreactors for municipal wastewater treatment.
The application of membrane bioreactors (MBRs) for municipal wastewater treatment has increased dramatically over the last decade. From a practitioner's perspective, design practice has evolved overExpand
