Biochemical methods based on the metabolism of microbial populations are often used to convert organic substrates and biowastes into gaseous renewable biofuels, such as biogas and bioH2. The anaerobic digestion is a mature, well-established technology to produce biogas, while the biochemical methodologies used to produce bioH2 are still facing several challenges to be scaled-up, in some cases from lab units to pilot plants and in other cases from pilot to industrial plants.
