Abstract

Thermophilic bacterial granules adapted to 70®C were rapidly generated from an undefined bacterial cultures obtained from mesophilic sources. The H2 generation process goals were assessed by considering two factors Firstly, whether a net positive net energy balance can be attained at thermophilic temperatures, and high effluent recycle rates. Secondly, whether the volumetric hydrogen productivities were sufficient to drive a 5 kW fuel cell when scale-up to 1 m3.
