Hi2bio en Aragón radio

Hi2BIO Project, featured in the Ágora Podcast on Aragón Radio

‘Hi2BIO’ project has been highlighted in the Aragón Radio program, Ágora, directed and presented by Marcos Ruiz. The episode, available from January 22, 2024, focuses on publicizing the research project. Hi2BIO seeks to revolutionize the production of biological hydrogen from industrial wastewater.

Ágora Podcast about the Hi2BIO project

Celia Trujillo, PhD in analytical sciences in chemistry and representative of Ingeniería de Obras Zaragoza S.L., together with Jesús Salafranca, from the Department of Analytical Chemistry (UNIZAR) and representative of the University of Zaragoza, participated in this episode. Both experts highlighted the importance of Hi2BIO, an evolution of the BIOH2 project, which demonstrates the ability to produce biological hydrogen from wastewater.

Hi2BIO project will be carried out over three years, from July 2023 to July 2026. The overall objective is to maximize the efficiency of biological hydrogen generation by integrating biological processes. The research will focus on dark fermentation and serial photo fermentation.

The European Union, through NextGenerationEU, the Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving (IDAE), recognizes this innovative project as a strategic project within the framework of the Recovery, Transformation and Economic Resilience Plan (PERTE) for critical sectors for the future.

It is expected to be a step forward, with a significant advance in the research of sustainable technologies for the generation of biological hydrogen by combining processes and optimizing synergistic effects.

Key Statements in the Podcast:

“This project arises from the idea of obtaining this green hydrogen in a way that reduces the emissions produced when obtaining it. We use bacteria, which, through metabolic reactions, produce that hydrogen.”

celia trujillo, head of the hi2bio project, states

“The aim of the project is to get a hydrogen stream, ideally 95% pure, that we could inject directly into pipelines. But the first stage is to isolate that hydrogen.”
