Bio-electrolysis: Novel Technology for Hydrogen Production from Lignocellulosic Biomass

The successful completion of the project will result in the development of a novel process for hydrogen production from woody biomass. With little modification, the process can also be used to produce hydrogen from other biomass. The project will lead to a better understanding of how the hydrolysate of woody biomass, electrode materials, and operational conditions affect the bio-electrolytic hydrogen production process. Knowledge derived from this research about the impacts of electrode material on biofilm formation will also have significant implications for many other environmental and industrial applications, such as microbial fuel cell and bioremediation. Presentations at regional and national conferences will be made and 2-3 peer reviewed papers will be published from the results of the project.
