Thesis Topic/Title
Harnessing Energy From Waste

Description

Fossil fuels are becoming more expensive, less available and environmentally disreputable. Hydrogen is promising energy alternative to non-renewable fossil fuels. It is green and clean energy since it produces only water as a by-product when burnt. Bio-hydrogen production from different types of organic wastes is gaining increasing attention recently. However, hydrogen producing potential of different agricultural wastes is yet to be explored fully. In Australia, we produce tons of waste, which could be converted to potential energy. This research aims to explore the potential of harnessing bio-hydrogen from different agricultural wastes using anaerobic fermentation.
