Abstract

The potential to produce biogas and bio hydrogen from corn residue was investigated. A sample of 10g initially hydrothermally treated to liberate the cellulose and hemicellulose rich hydrolysate. Three steps for treatment at 80°C for 15 min; 180°C for 40 min and 190°C and 10 min were investigated for corn residue conversion to soluble sugars. The highest cellulose yield was 0.356g per gram of corn residues through fermentation and 0.312g of bio hydrogen per gram of corn residues. An industrial process for the co-generation of biogas and bio-hydrogen from corn stover was then proposed from the experimental work.
