Fermentative Hydrogen Production: From Fundamentals and Processes is a comprehensive examination of the theoretical and operational aspects of dark fermentative production of hydrogen. The book presents the latest technological developments, analyzes advantages and challenges, and discusses the potential for the maturity of dark fermentation. Part One analyzes the various technologies for hydrogen production, purification, storage, applications, and safety. In Part Two, first to third generation feedstocks are reviewed, as well as co-fermentation and solid and liquid wastes. Part Three examines the typical hydrogen-producing microorganisms in both pure and mixed cultures, along with sequencing techniques, pretreatment considerations, and engineering options.

Part Four discusses influencing factors such as operational parameters, promotors, inhibitors, and has a dedicated section on the effects of Iron. Finally, Part Five directly compares dark hydrogen with other hydrogen production technologies through life cycle environmental impact assessments, highlighting bottlenecks and challenges in scaling up these technologies.
