Abstract

Laboratory-scale hydrogen production was carried out using biological methods. Fermentation of E.Coli produced hydrogen at 25 kPa partial pressure. Besides the product, the gas mixture formed contained CO 2 and N 2. For separation, a membrane process using polymeric foams was proposed. The purified product was brought into fuel cell with proton exchange membranes based on aliphatic copolymers of vinyl phosphonic acid. The productivity and efficiency of integrated process was optimized. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 18th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering (Prague, Czech Republic 8/24-28/2008).
