Abstract: This communication presents the potential of process parameters including simple sugars and pH for biohydrogen production using facultative anaerobic bacteria Enterobacter aerogens. The obtained data was fit in the modified Gompertz equation and the regression coefficient (R2) was found in the range of 0.998 which provides a strong correlation between the experimental data and the curve fit. The study revealed that glucose is the most compatible and cost effective substrate for biohydrogen production having yield of 0.87mol H2/mol of glucose consumed. It is also found that there is a strong possibility to use sugar based organic residues from industrial substrates and wastewater for clean energy products which are cost effective and environmental friendly.
