Abstract

In the article, were checked influences of microaeration, pH, and VSS (Volatile Suspended Solid) for sour cab-bage anaerobic digestion. Results fermentation of sour cabbage under the condition of small oxygen addition are presented in this research can be classified as dark fermentation or hydrogenotrophic anaerobic digestion. The investigations were carried out for two concentrations 5 g VSS /L and 10 g VSS /L of sour cabbage at pH 6.0. The oxygen flow rates (OFR) for 5 g VSS /L were in the range of 0.53 to 3.3 mL/h for obtaining 2% to 8% of oxygen. In cases of low pH and microaeration, ethylene production was observed at a level below 0.05% in biogas. The highest volume of hydrogen for 5 g VSS/L was obtained for flow rate 0.58 O2 mL/h, giving hydrogen concentration in biogas in the range of 0 to 20%. For VSS 5 g/L and oxygen flow rate 0.58 mL/h; 0.021 L of hydrogen is produced per gram of VSS. In this case, VSS 10 g/L and oxygen flow rate 1.4 mL/h at pH 6.0, 0.03 L of hydrogen is generated per gram. Microaeration from 0.58 mL/h to 0.87 mL/h was propitious for hydrogen production at 5 g VSS/L of sour cabbage and 1.4 mL/h for 10 g/L. Another relevant factor is the volatile suspended solid factor of sour cabbage that caused optimal hydrogen production at VSS 89.32%.
