This edited book covers all the existing possibilities of using food waste as a potential, alternative and ready to use, feed stock for biofuels production. Moreover, it also presents all the sustainable and economically feasible biofuels option with their details strategies, mechanism, advantages, draw backs and future scope. It also explores in depth knowledge of food waste, and details the processing as well as opportunities to utilize it at for mass scale biofuels production. The practical feasibility and economic sustainability of biofuels production is still suffering with its cost intensity and lack of rigorous scientific strategies as well as inputs to explore it on further at upscale level. Low cost, carbon rich, economic and environmental friendly feedstock, may have strong possibilities to reduce the overall biofuels production cost and the book is based on this strategy. The book is of interest to academicians and researchers interested in industries related to biofuels production, food processing industries and industries related to waste valorization.

This chapter provides an up-to-date overview of fermentative hydrogen production from organic solid wastes. Numerous recent works have reported that abundant organic solid wastes from households, agriculture, and industry are potential feedstocks for hydrogen production, which can be exploited for waste management and energy production at the same time. However, the hydrogen production potential varies widely depending on the substrate components. This chapter thus deals with the characteristics of various organic solid wastes. Several effective strategies, including hydrolysis and sterilization methods to render organic solid wastes as a feasible substrate for effective hydrogen production, are presented. Hydrogen production is not only restricted by the composition of organic wastes, but also is dependent on the operational conditions. Thus, key parameters affecting hydrogen production, such as pH, temperature, nutrient supplementation, and hydraulic retention time, are reviewed. In addition, reactor types suitable for enhancing hydrogen production are also discussed.
