Die mikrobielle Elektrosynthese von Methan
- 97 Downloads
Methane is not only a potent greenhouse gas but also a modern biofuel, which is produced mainly by biological methanation in biogas plants. Here we describe an alternative process of methane production, called „microbial electrosynthesis“. This process has the potential to reduce CO2 emissions and to convert electrical excess current or renewable energies into methane.
