PurposeTo investigate the effect of pH and thus determine the optimal pH value for biohydrogen production from a mixture of End-of-Life Dairy Products (EoL-DPs) through dark fermentation in view of increasing the yield of their subsequent co-digestion with agroindustrial wastes in a two-stage anaerobic digestion system.MethodsA Continuously Stirred Tank Reactor (CSTR) was operated under mesophilic conditions (37 °C) and hydraulic retention time of 6 days in order to enhance biohydrogen… CONTINUE READING
