Abstract

Hydrogen has been recognized globally as an energy carrier that fulfills all the environmental quality, energy security and economic competitive demands. It is the lightest of all gases and is odourless, colourless and nontoxic. Hydrogen is important because it offers Earth another fuel source and may free it from using fossil fuels someday. It is currently used as a gas and liquid for many different industries and is often used to provide electricity in the fuel cells of automobiles or in internal combustion engines. In the present study, batch experiments are performed using wastewater to examine the influence of iron concentration on hydrogen production. The batch experiments are conducted in varying iron concentrations by checking the physicochemical characteristics of the wastewater. The experiment is mainly conducted by using dairy waste. Iron concentration plays an essential role in the hydrogen production by anaerobic bacteria as it facilitates activation of hydrogenase bacterial action cofactors and hydrogen evolution.
