Funded PhD Scholarship on Biogas from Biomass Residues – MMU – Deadline 31 Jan 17

The aim of this PhD is to demonstrate the potential of the investigated biomass integrated biorefinery configuration to produce green compostable bioplastic (PLA) and bioenergy in the form of biogas. This is an excellent opportunity to apply the principles of oil refinery to degradable biomass in a zero-waste approach for sustainable production of value-added products and energy. More information can be found on the MMU website.

3rd International Conference on Biogas Microbiology – Wageningen 1-3 May 17

The is a chance to attend a focussed conference on the increasingly popular theme of  Biogas Microbiology. The Conference offers a common ground for bioprocess engineers and microbiologists to share their knowledge, and gives the opportunity to discuss and focus on important recent developments in biogas microbiology. Conference Themes include:

Anaerobic reactors: Waste to gas
Methane production under extreme conditions
New trends in biogas production
Novel anaerobes
Biogas from Nature
Complex anaerobic communities (SIAM sessions)
