Abstract

Bio-hydrogen and/or methane production from the organic fraction of solid waste, such as fruit and vegetable waste (FVW), constitutes an attractive and economical technology for energy production. The application of this process would allow for the simultaneous treatment of organic residues and energy production. In this chapter, data obtained to evaluate methane production from FVW are presented. Besides, the feasibility of bio-hydrogen production by using the anaerobic digester sludge as seed, and the culture conditions to enhance Bio-H2 production in batch and a continuous system were established and are described. The effect of increasing initial concentration of FVW on H2 production was evaluated in batch experiments and is also presented and discussed. Finally, the feasibility of producing H2 from FVW and obtaining electricity by coupling proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) was demonstrated.
