ANR Défi H12
Défi H12 (ANR-09-BIOE-10) is a research program on Bioenergies funded by the French National Research Agency from 2009 to 2013.
The project proposes to convert the organic acids produced by fermentation in hydrogen, taking advantage of the Microbial Electrolysis Cell (MEC) technology.
This basic research will couple tightly microbiology, molecular biology and electrochemistry to design a prototype within the rules of electrochemical engineering, for obtaining a system beyond a laboratory cell which foreshadows an industrial pilot capable to provide reliable information to assess the potential production of bio-hydrogen by electrolysis of organic matter.
