Photoproduction of molecular hydrogen from waste water of a sugar refinery by photosynthetic bacteria

From enrichment cultures inoculated with water and sediments of a waste-water pond of a sugar refinery several photosynthetic nonsulphur bacteria have been isolated and tested for the ability to produce molecular hydrogen in the light. Strains have been found that utilize the freshly used, untreated waste substrate with higher yields than the laboratory… CONTINUE READING
