Within the scope of bioenergy production studies, this project focuses on the assessment of an AnSBBR applied to biohydrogen production by treating glucose based synthetic wastewater. In this study the following will be assessed: biohydrogen production, conversion factor between formed hydrogen and consumed organic matter, reactor efficiency and stability when subjected to different organic loads and feed times, which are modified depending on the influent concentration and total cycle length.
