Gases play various roles in biotechnology. Often there is more behind the gas system than just the inclusion or exclusion of oxygen. In some processes gas is the substrate (e.g. N2, CO2, H2), in others the end product is released in gaseous form (e.g. H2). There are many challenges and advantages related to the use of gases in biotechnological processes.
The topics include microbiology, pure culture microbiology, artificial microbial ecosystems, mixed culture, growth conditions as well as biochemical engineering. Day 1, the 28th of January, will focus on N2 fixation and gas fermentation, and on day 2, the 29th of January, the workshop will focus on biological H2 production.
The keynote speakers will be Prof. dr. ir. Willy Verstraete (University Ghent, Belgium) and Prof. Dr. Volker Müller (Goethe Universität Frankfurt, Germany).
