Fermentative H2 evolution, nitrogenase activity (acetylene reduction) and nitrogenase mediated H2 evolution was studied in free cells of mixed microbial population of H2 producers. At 3% glucose level, the cells produced 8.35 l H2/mol glucose utilized. The role of nitrogenase system in H2 generation was evident by derepressed nitrogenase activity (0.46… CONTINUE READING
