Abstract: Hydrogen is view as a very clean energy source, since its combustion release mainly H2O as a reaction product additionally it has advantage of having the highest energy density when compared to any other fuel. This research article summaries the fermentative production of biohydrogen gas and removal of pollution load from Sewage wastewater. In this study various parameters like contact time, pH value, reactor operating temperature are considered. An anaerobic batch reactor along with at magnetic stirrer having working volume of 1.5 litres was constructed and operated for 12 days. The temperature of the CSTR was regulated at atmospheric temperature. Biohydrogen gas obtained after 12 days about 106 ml at pH value 6.0-5.7, atmospheric temperature 26±2 ºC. Colour of the substrate was Dark medium gray when maximum of obtained.
