Hydrogen production with photosynthetic microorganisms contributes to the protection of the environment, not only in producing a clean fuel but also in waste treatment processes. In this study, Rhodobacter sphaeroides, a photosynthetic bacteria, is used in photobiological hydrogen production by using waste water from the milk industry.
