Biochemistry and molecular biology

Biochemistry, sometimes called biological chemistry, is the study of chemical processes within and relating to living organisms. Molecular biology concerns the molecular basis of biological activity between the various systems of a cell, including the interactions between DNA, RNA and proteins and their biosynthesis, as well as the regulation of these interactions.

Collaboration partners

We collaborate with several organisations to find solutions for optimised biogas production with higher yields and improved process stability. Our collaboration partners Universities och Institutes

Ongoing projects

Our goal is to generate knowledge that allows a controlled manangement of the microbiological biogas process. We aim to reach high effectivity, stability and biogas production in constructed reactors

Microbiology of the biogas process

Microbiology of the biogas process

Biogas is produced through degradation of organic material in complex microbial processes. We aim to find solutions for optimised gas production with higher yields and improved process stability.
