Presentation of BiotoH2

This presentation has been shown to the audience at the Research2Industry Days in São Paulo.

About the project

The FH Aachen, University of Applied Sciences, is pursuing the generation of hydrogen from various renewable raw materials. These can be, e.g., leaves, green cuttings, organic waste or food residues. The conversion from biomasses proceeds as a mesoseptic thermophilic microbiological process. In particular, the technology can serve as an additional supply route for H2 that does not rely on increasingly scarce electrical energy.

Its advantage is the ability to produce on demand and independent of weather conditions. The interdisciplinary research network has already successfully demonstrated how the microbial conversion of grass to hydrogen works with high yields. The long-term goal is decentralized, electricity- and weather-independent alternative hydrogen production.

This picture refers to the BiotoH2 project which is one of the award-winning EnergInno Brazil Research-SME-Tandems.
