  • In the present work the hydrogenesis in the anaerobic alkalithermophilic bacterium Thermobrachium celere was studied. The impact of several factors on hydrogen production during glucose fermentation was investigated in batch conditions. The optimal hydrogen production occurred at pH (67 °C) 8.2 with phosphate buffer concentration of 50 mM. Hydrogen yield reached the highest value of 3.36 mol H2/mol glucose when the partial pressure in the gas headspace was reduced. Supplementation of nitrogen… CONTINUE READING
