Recently published: Bioreactors for microbial biomass and energy conversion

The book, co-edited by ATB scientist Christiane Herrmann, reviews recent trends and developments in the area of microbial energy conversion technologies with particular attention to bioreactors.

The book introduces principles and guidelines for the design of innovative bioreactors, which enhance the efficiency of the microbial conversion process. It combines microbial conversion with multiphase flow and mass transfer, providing an alternative perspective for the understanding of microbial biomass and energy production.

Chapter 5 highlights the relationship between bioreactor design and feedstock for optimal biogas production is highlighted in a contribution. Authors are Christiane Herrmann together with her ATB colleague Patrice Ramm and Jerry D. Murphy from University College Cork, Ireland.

The publication addresses students and researchers in the field of renewable energy, engineering and biotechnology, but also politicians, economists and industry engineers.
