Final Report - HYVOLUTION (Non-thermal production of pure hydrogen from biomass)

Project ID: 19825
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


The HYVOLUTION project, funded under the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), aimed to produce hydrogen from biomass in an experimental plant. The novel approach adopted in the project was based on a combined bioprocess employing thermophilic and phototrophic bacteria, to provide the highest hydrogen production efficiency in small-scale, cost effective industries.

The final report provides a summary of the main project objectives, a thorough overview of the work performed through the seven work packages and the results achieved.

In HYVOLUTION, 10 European Union countries, Turkey, Russia and South Africa were represented providing the critical mass for realising a breakthrough in cost-effectiveness of hydrogen production. The participants had a complementary value in being biomass suppliers, end-users or stakeholders for developing specialised enterprises and stimulating new agro-industrial development, which would be needed to make the objectives of HYVOLUTION: small-scale sustainable hydrogen production from locally produced biomass, come true.
