Energy is an urging need of the daily life is going on depleting while the demand for is increasing with this time bio-hydrogen technology provides an alternative source of energy and hails as an typical appropriate technology that meets the basic need for cooking fuel in rural India. The main objective of the study is to produce the bio hydrogen from dairy waste water with in oculums by anaerobic sequncing batch reactor, which can be used to improve the conditions favourable for H2 production. A study was undertaken to know the possibility of producing bio-energy from wastes generated in industry. Dairy wastewater was evaluated for biological hydrogen production in conjugation with wastewater treatment in a suspended growth sequencing batch reactor (AnSBR). The horse manure is used as inoculum.The minimum and maximum level of hydrogen is produced from different HRT loading rates such as 72 HRT, 96 HRT,120 HRT, and 168 HRT loading. The reactor was designed with 34.3cm diameter and 57.4cm height, the gas escape valve is 1.5cm, substrate fill valve is 13.3cm are provided. The reactor was coated with AMBER, which is used to restrict the absence of light energy in AnSBR.
