Abstract

This article summarizes recent advances in the field of algal hydrogen production. Two fundamental approaches are being developed. One involves the temporal separation of the usually incompatible reactions of O(2) and H(2) production in green algae, and the second involves the use of classical genetics to increase the O(2) tolerance of the reversible hydrogenase enzyme. The economic and environmental impact of a renewable source of H(2) are also discussed.
