CONTROL-AD4H2. Control of Anaerobic Digestion Processesfor Optimisation of Hydrogen Production

    Project Details


    Hydrogen can be biological produced from organic wastes by several methods among which anaerobic fermentation is a very attractive one. However, the main obstacles in bio-hydrogen application as industrial process are the low yields and non-optimized process. This project focuses on these points studying the following main objectives:
    1.Identify important parameters influencing metabolic pathways for optimal hydrogen production
    2.Compare the different modelling approaches available in the literature for anaerobic digestion processes and include the hydrogen pathways.
    3.Investigate process configurations for maximising energy output of combined biohydrogen (as first priority) and biogas (as second priority) in a combined treatment process.
    4.Develop appropriate control laws to optimise hydrogen and biogas production.
