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.
