Synthetic fuels from biomass and hydrogen

Hydrogen produced from biomass

HyPerFerment - More Efficient Biogas Plants via Hydrogen Production

Short Introductive summary

The decarbonization potential of hydrogen offers increasing usage paths in the fight against climate change. This leads to increasing demand for H2. We meet this challenge by producing biological hydrogen as an alternative to water electrolysis. Initial results have shown that by integrating dark fermentation in existing biogas plants, the overall efficiency of the process can be increased by providing hydrogen in addition to biogas. This abstract presents and evaluates the first results of laboratory experiments. The planned contribution for the EUBCE 2023 will go into more detail regarding data collection and evaluation. The test results are examined based on limit-oriented efficiency evaluation to show the potential for optimization of biological concepts based on modeling. In addition, the new status of the commissioning of a demonstration plant on an industrial scale is presented.
