innovation for renovation
The pilot-scale project proposal targets hydrogen production and optimization through fermentation of organic waste.
The project goal is a tangible increase in production process performance measured experimentally based on the relevant key parameters (pH, temperature, mixing, redox potential), by means of pre-treatment chemical/physical and microbiological tests carried out on the initial biomass and enzymatic assays for the hydrogenases involved in the hydrogen production process.
Results from experimental activities will provide the basis for a feasibility study of an industrial scale application of the process and the relevant economic and energy related analyses.
The project is funded by the Regione Piemonte – Piedmont regional authorities- in the framework of the POLIGHT pole for innovation, and it features cooperation with and among:
