Waste biosolids collected from sewage works is a biomass containing a vast amount of polysaccharides and proteins, and thus is considered a potential substrate for producing hydrogen using anaerobic fermentation. This work demonstrated, contrary to the common assumption, that the solids phase in waste activated biosolids presents extra nutrients for anaerobes; it in fact prohibits effective bio-hydrogen production. Using filtrate after removal of solids from biosolids produces more hydrogen… CONTINUE READING
