By using living organisms much older than the human species itself, we have developed a pioneering fermentation technology, transforming biomass into renewable energy. Our laboratory in Regensburg plays the leading role in this groundbreaking work.
Our lab engineers are constantly searching for the “perfect formula” – the best conditions and the best bacteria to produce renewable energy as efficiently as possible.
Their work gives our potential clients the opportunity to test different biomasses on distinct types of hyperthermofilic bacterias. By doing this, we uncover the full potential and what they gain by using our technology – before making any heavy investments.
Our lab in Regensburg
Our lab originated within and later sprang out of the Institute of Microbiology of the University of Regensburg. This Institute is well known in science for the work and the discoveries of Prof. Karl-Otto Stetter (more than 330 publications) and his group on hyperthermophilic bacteria and archaea.
At our lab we have been screening different microorganisms for their ability to grow on various substrates, such as food waste, straw, whey, manure, fish waste etc.
Hyperthermics need its lab and the lab engineers needs the microorganisms to transform waste into green energy. Our “secret” ingredient is the ancient organisms, extracted from places deep within the earth or hydrothermal vents on the seafloor or volcanic environment. Since they are living organisms, they must be treated accordingly. This isn’t machines.
Finding the perfect combination
Because these organisms operate differently and react differently regarding to temperature, temperature fluctuations and type of biomass – we have to figure out what they prefer to eat and who they want to dine with. That’s why we are constantly testing. That’s why our lab plays a leading role in our groundbreaking work.
