Several studies on biohydrogen production from POME have been accomplished using different reactors. The
A combination of up-flow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) and up-flow fixed film (UFF) in a single reactor was invented as modified up-flow anaerobic sludge blanket-fixed film (UASB-FF) bioreactor to produce biohydrogen from POME. The fixed film (FF) packed at the top section make this bioreactor overwhelmed the recognized shortages of UASB and helps to retain a high concentration of biomass and prevents sludge washout in the reactor. The use of UASB-FF reactor was a good strategy to accelerate anaerobic granulation and to achieve a high COD removal efficiency as well as H2 yield in a short period of time.
