TECHNOLOGY MISSION PROJECT ON HYDROGEN PRODUCTION THROUGH BIOLOGICAL ROUTES
SPONSORED BY: MINISTRY OF NEW AND RENEWABLE ENERGY (MNRE), New Delhi.


PROJECT OBJECTIVES:

  1. Identifying various micro-organisms for biological hydrogen production through dark fermentation and photo fermentation processes.
  2. Characterization of various substrates like cane molasses, distillery wastes, paper mill effluents, etc. that are rich in carbohydrates and can be utilized for hydrogen production.
  3. Optimization of various physico-chemical and biological process parameters for maximum production.
  4. Development of prototype model for demonstrating the production process.
  5. Evaluation of the material and energy analysis of the process.
  6. Scale up of the production system which includes pilot scale studies on hydrogen production from carbohydrate of bio-organic wastes.
  7. Design of a commercial plant for bio-hydrogen production.


EXPECTED OUTPUT OF THE PROJECT:

  1. Optimization of physico-chemical parameters for the high rate bio-hydrogen production process.
  2. Development of proto-type model for the scale up studies and demonstration of the process.
  3. 10 cubic meter pilot plant demonstration at three different locations in India i.e. at Kharagpur, New Delhi and Hyderabad with hydrogen generation capacity of 30,000 to 50,000 liters per day
  4. Material and energy analysis of the process.
  5. Design of 1000 cubic meter bio-reactor for the commercial application of the process.
  6. Patents for product/process
