In order for hydrogen to become a truly "green" source of energy, more environmentally sustainable techniques must be developed for its production. The potential for hydrogen production from food processing wastewaters, a series of batch and chemostat experiments with simulated and real wastewaters was conducted. Ordinary soil was used as an inoculum for hydrogen producing processes. In all cases, high hydrogen concentrations were measured in headspace. The research was directed at maximizing the conversion of renewable substrates to hydrogen in a continuous reactor system.
