It has no ability to utilize CO as a metabolic energy source). However, it is essential to remove light for H2 production. It was also reported that the loss in H2 production activity due to O2 exposure can be easily recovered by the addition of nutrients such as yeast extract and sucrose under anaerobic conditions, highlighting P4 as a promising candidate for industrial H2 production [26]. Process parameters, including among others intensity of light, gas composition, nutrient composition, pH, temperature and CO partial pressure, affect the performance of hydrogenogenic microorganisms.
