|Title||Effects of Volatile Solid Concentration and Mixing Ratio on Hydrogen Production by Co-Digesting Molasses Wastewater and Sewage Sludge|
J. Microbiol. Biotechnol.2014 ;
|Abstract||Co-digesting molasses wastewater and sewage sludge was evaluated for hydrogen production
by response surface methodology (RSM). Batch experiments in accordance with various
dilution ratios (40- to 5-fold) and waste mixing composition ratios (100:0, 80:20, 60:40, 40:60,
20:80, and 0:100, on a volume basis) were conducted. Volatile solid (VS) concentration strongly
affected the hydrogen production rate and yield compared with the waste mixing ratio. The
specific hydrogen production rate was predicted to be optimal when the VS concentration
ranged from 10 to 12 g/l at all the mixing ratios of molasses wastewater and sewage sludge. A
hydrogen yield of over 50 ml H2/g VSremoved was obtained from mixed waste of 10% sewage
sludge and 10 g/l VS (about 10-fold dilution ratio). The optimal chemical oxygen demand/
total nitrogen ratio for co-digesting molasses wastewater and sewage sludge was between 250
and 300 with a hydrogen yield above 20 ml H2/g VSremoved.|
