Price awarded for increased production yield of bio-hydrogen using Protéus enzyme cocktail


French ADEME and Pollutec recently awarded a prize to a team of INRA in Narbonne. Prize for Innovative Techniques for the Environment is awarded for their collaborative work with Proteus on intensification of production of bio-hydrogen by fermentation from lignocellulosic residues (wheat straw).

This work, was made using an enzyme cocktail developed by Protéus. This cocktail was used for the pretreatment of the fermentative pathway (two-step process: hydrolysis and dark fermentation). But also, and this is an innovative result, by direct addition to the fermenter (one step process).
