Biohydrogen is a promising energy source since it is clean and renewable. The HYVOLUTION project (EU 6th Framework Programme) is aimed to develop an integrated process in which biomass is utilized for the biohydrogen production in two steps. In the first step biomass is fermented to acetate, lactate, CO2 and hydrogen by an extreme thermophile (Caldicellulosiruptor saccharolyticus). In the second step, acetate and lactate is converted to hydrogen and CO2 by photofermentation with purple nonsulfur bacteria.
