Microbial Conversion Technologies

In the Microbial Conversion Technologies research group, we focus on the use of microorganisms for solving some of the great societal, environmental and technical challenges that we as a society has to deal with.

Our main focus is Power-to-X or, more specifically, Power-to-Gas technologies for the conversion of renewable electricity from wind turbines or solar cells to methane through the process of bio-methanation. The produced methane – or biomethane - can be used for production of electricity and heat, heavy transportation or further processing to renewable chemicals.
