This study evaluated the influences of inoculum-substrate ratio (ISR), volatile fatty acids (VFAs) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, the reduced form (NADH) on hydrogen production during the anaerobic fermentation of Chlorella sp. in batch tests at 35 °C. The results indicated that the hydrogen concentration and lag time increased when ISR decreased, and the maximum hydrogen production and hydrogen content, 7.13 mL/g VS and 45.3%, respectively, were obtained when ISR was equal to 0.3.
