Research areas

PhD project:
"Microbial communities and co-cultures for highly selective gas bioconversions in attached growth systems - GASBIO"

The aim of the PhD project is to discover, isolate and analyse mixed microbial consortia’s and design co-cultures that are able to convert syngas (H2, CO and CO2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) into solvents as butanol and acetone and evaluate the developed processes from a techno-economical point-of view. The vision is a gas fermentation platform that produce chemicals and fuels from renewable resources.
