Gas conversion

Final circular imageWe are working with colleagues in Civil Engineering at NUI Galway on biofilm reactor technology for the removal of noxious, and greenhouse, gases from airstreams. Our focus is on the diversity and activity of microbial populations in gas-oxidising biofilms. We have recently described the biofilms underpinning low-temperature, methane-oxidising biofilms.

This page will be updated with more information soon. In the meantime, you can click on the thumbnails below to see bigger pictures, or you can see the odour & gas lab here.
