Biohydrogen: For Future Engine Fuel Demands covers the production, purification, storage, pipeline transport, usage, and safety of biohydrogen. Hydrogen promises to be the most significant fuel source of the future, due to its global availability and the fact that water is its only by-product. Biofuels such as bioethanol, biodiesel, bio-oil, and biohydrogen are produced using technologies for thermochemically and biologically converting biomass. Hydrogen fuel production technologies can make use of either non-renewable sources, or renewable sources such as wind, solar, and biorenewable resources. Biohydrogen: For Future Engine Fuel Demands reviews all of the modern biomass-based transportation fuels, including bioethanol, biodiesel, biogas, biohydrogen, and fuel cells. The book also discusses issues of biohydrogen economy, policy and environmental impact. Biohydrogen looks set to be the fuel of choice in the future, replacing both fossil fuels and biorenewable liquid fuels.

The world needs clean and renewable energy and hydrogen represents an almost ideal resource. Hydrogen is the simplest and most abundant molecule in the universe, yet one that is a challenge to produce from renewable resources. Biohydrogen, or hydrogen produced from renewable resources such as water or organic wastes by biological means, is a goal worthy of increased global attention and resources. The purpose of BioHydrogen '97 was to bring together leaders in the biological p- duction of hydrogen from the United States, Japan, Europe, and elsewhere to exchange scientific and technical information and catalyze further cooperative programs. Parti- pants came from at least different countries representing academia, industry, and g- ernment. Especially important participants were young research scientists and engineers: the next generation of contributors. The conference consisted of plenary presentations, topical sessions, posters, and mini-workshop discussions on key areas of biohydrogen. It was designed to maximize - formation exchange, personal interaction among participants, and formulate new inter- tional initiatives. BioHydrogen '97 was an outgrowth of an international workshop convened by the Research Institute of Innovative Technology for the Earth (RITE) and was held in Tokyo, Japan, November 24-25, 1994. The RITE workshop was highly successful but largely l- ited to traditional biochemical and biological studies and not engineering research topics.

Metabolic engineering has been studied extensively to improve microbial hydrogen (H2) production. Elimination or modification of carbon metabolic pathways, incorporation of nonnative metabolic pathways leading to H2 production, utilization of various carbon substrates, and improvement of H2-producing enzymes (hydrogenase and nitrogenase) were the major focuses of these studies. This chapter highlights recent developments with metabolic engineering toward improving the yield and rate of microbial biohydrogen production.

This book describes the feasibility of using molecular dynamics as a screening technique to identify the stability of HydA1 and PetF interactions. Structure-based computational approaches are necessary to recognize and characterize protein-protein complexes and their functions. It introduces the idea that for specific proteins, homology modeling is the most effective technique and that docking algorithms are an increasingly powerful tool for providing a detailed explanation of such interactions. This book is a useful source of information on biomass-based biofuels for researchers in the field of bio-hydrogen and bioinformatics techniques. Biofuel and bioenergy produced from unicellular microalgae Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is a clean energy source and providing information about functional optimization in HydA1 and PetF interactions will help researchers to adopt swift screening methods to identify key protein complexes and their functions. The book also provides an introduction to hydrogenases and associated Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, which is a useful model microorganism for research on biofuel production. The book focuses on the in silico methods such as phylogenetic studies, homology modeling, molecular docking, electrostatic studies and conformational analysis, which have the potential to become the most cost-effective methods for bio-fuel production.
