This study investigated the effect of silver oxide nanoparticles on bio-hydrogen yield. It is quite popular to support bio-hydrogen production with the use of nanoparticles. The use of nanopariticles produced by supplementing with natural products is important for a sustainable environment. A green synthesis of silver oxide nanoparticles was developed using Chorella sp. of microalgae as a reducing agent in this study. SEM, EDX and UV-Visible spectrum analyzes were performed for the characterization of the synthesized nanoparticles. Hydrogen production performance with Clostridium sp. was evaluated using different ratios of nanoparticles produced. The effect of addition of nanoparticles on dark fermentative bio-hydrogen production evaluated compared to control set.
