Title:
METHOD FOR PRODUCING HYDROGEN WITH MICROORGANISM
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2005087035
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To provide a method for producing hydrogen with a microorganism, by which the hydrogen useful for operating, for example, fuel batteries can profitably be produced at a practically sufficient rate substantially without accompanying the by-production of injurious CO.

This method for producing the hydrogen with the microorganism is characterized by culturing the microorganism having a formate dehydrogenation enzyme gene and a hydrogenase gene in a formate-containing culture solution under an aerobic condition, adding a reduced state solution for producing the hydrogen to the culture solution, and then supplying an organic substrate to the solution.
