Production of biohydrogen gas from dairy industry wastewater by anaerobic fermentation process
Ravi Kumar Parihar, Dr. Kanjan Upadhyay
Hydrogen is view as a very clean energy source, since its combustion release mainly dihydrogen monoxide as a reaction product additionally it has advantage of having the highest energy density when compared to any other fuel. Biological production of hydrogen gas has consequential advantage over chemical methods. This research article summaries the fermentative biohydrogen production from dairy wastewater. This research deals with the production of biohydrogen gas and removal of pollution load from dairy wastewater. In this study various parameters like contact time, pH value, reactor operating temperature, Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), Total Solid (TS), Total Dissolved Solid (TDS) and Conductivity are considered for the dairy effluent. An anaerobic batch reactor attached with magnetic stirrer with working volume of 1.5 litres was constructed and operated for 12 days. The temperature of the CSTR regulated at atmospheric temperature. H2 gas obtained after 12 days about 128 ml at pH value 6.0-4.9, atmospheric temperature 28±2 0C and colour of the substrate was almond.
