Robust operation through effluent recycling for hydrogen production from the organic fraction of municipal solid waste

Abstract : The stability of fermentative hydrogen production from the organic fraction of municipal solid waste (OFMSW) was evaluated in this work using a strategy of effluent recycling. Three pretreatment conditions were applied on the recycled effluent: a) no heat shock treatment, b) one initial heat shock treatment (90 °C, 30 min) and c) systematic heat shock treatment at the beginning of each fermentation. When a systematic heat shock was applied, a maximal hydrogen yield of 17.2 ± 3.8 mLH2/gVS was attained. The hydrogen productivity was improved by 331% reaching a stable value of 1.51 ± 0.29 mLH2/gVS/h, after 8 cycles of effluent recycling. This strategy caused a sharp decrease of diversity with stable co-dominance of hydrogen- and lactate-producing bacteria, ie. Clostridiales and Lactobacillales, respectively. For the other conditions, a sharp decrease of the hydrogen yields was observed showing the importance of applying a heat shock treatment for optimal hydrogen production with effluent recycling.
