Latest on our greenhouse-gas-oxidising biofilms

One of our postgrad students, Sean Gerrity, who has been working on the ecophysiology of gas-oxidising biofilms, has just finished his benchwork.  Sean’s work has been on methane-, hydrogen sulphide- and ammonia-oxidising biofilms in novel, horizontal-flow biofilm reactors (HFBRs). We’ve worked … Continue reading
