New protocol to enhance photosynthetic production of hydrogen from green algae

Green Car Congress

For decades, researchers believed that the main obstacle to the longer-term hydrogen production in algae in light was the destruction of the hydrogenase enzyme, a key element in this process, which is caused by oxygen. This led to techniques such as sulfur-deprivation to extend hydrogen production. In addition, algae steer the electrons resulting from the decomposition of water and charged by sunlight into hydrogen production instead of biomass accumulation.
