Processes for producing a recycle hydrogen gas stream from an offgas separated from a reaction zone effluent. The reaction zone may receive a renewable feedstock and produce an effluent with gaseous components of hydrogen and light hydrocarbons. The offgas may be compressed, pass through hydrogen sulfide removal and then be sent to a reforming unit, such as a steam reformer. The steam reformer will generate additional hydrogen which can be recycled back to the reaction zone.
