This study analyzed the hydrogen conversion rate and microbial community in conjunction with changes in carbohydrate concentration during hydrogen fermentation using food waste, and presented comprehensive research results for the condition 80 g Carbo COD/L, which showed the highest efficiency with a carbohydrate removal rate of 98.1% and a hydrogen conversion rate of 1.76 mol H2/mol.

The microbial community analysis found that Clostridium sp., widely known as a hydrogen-producing microorganism, was released in 80 g Carbo COD/L and confirmed that it was a dominant species at 98.1%. Conversely, in 100 g Carbo. Under COD/L conditions, Leuconostoc sp. showed the maximun prevalence, which is believed to hinder hydrogen production.
