The influences of initial pH (4.0-9.0), iron concentration (1.2-100 mg/l), nitrogen concentration (NH4HCO3, 0.56-11.28 g/l) and starch concentration (2-32 g/l) on hydrogen production and volatile fatty acid (VFA) production were studied. Batch experiments using starch as a substrate and mixed bacteria were conducted at 35 degrees C. The optimum pH, iron concentration and nitrogen concentration for hydrogen production at a starch concentration of 15 g/l were 7.0-8.0, Fe2+ 10 mg/l and NH4HCO3 5… CONTINUE READING
