Algae strain for hydrogen

Algae strain for hydrogen

Postby guru » Sat Jan 31, 2009 11:16 am

Is there any other strain apart from C. Reinhartii investigated for hydrogen production?

Hai guru,
C.reinhartii is widely investigated for hydrogen production but actually several microalgae and blue green algae are capable of hydrogen production
1. Gaffron and Rubin worked on hydrogen production from Scenedesmus
2. Asada and Kawamura explained hydrogen production from Spirulina
3. Benemann and Weare demonstated Anabaena cylindrica producing hydrogen

This is good to know, having so many strains makes the possibility of getting H2 from algae that much higher...

But is there any company trying to commercialise H2 production from algae using any of these strains?

Melis Energy, a start up launched by professor Tasios Melis, University of California at Berkeley trying to commercialize the algae to H2 technology.

Refer this too...
Melis has created mutant algae that make better use of sunlight than their natural cousins do. This could increase the hydrogen that the algae produce by a factor of three.

I came across a link,Here they are discussing “Sustained photoevolution of molecular hydrogen in a mutant of Synechocystis sp…..

Anabaena variabilis strain also being investigated…

Here is one more useful article on Anabaena variabilis
“Light transfer in bubble sparged photobioreactors forH2 production and CO2 mitigation”

Here, there is another link which gives all useful information about the algal strains involved in the hydrogen production.. Especially the biophotolysis of water by microalgae and cyanobacteria is quite interesting.. Check it out!!1
