Our biogas research covers the entire process chain from the provision and optimization of substrates (plant biomass, manure or other organic residues, e.g. landscaping material), the use of novel types of reactors and concepts for biogas plants including process control and process management, the analysis of the microbiology living inside the reactor, up to the processing of the fermentation residues. 

The complex objective biogas production requires close interdisciplinary collaboration between the departments of the ATB. 

Current research: 

  • Kinetics of biogas production from organic materials
  • Model-based optimization of degradation processes
  • Structure and function of anaerobic biofilms
  • System analysis of the microbiological conversion of biomass for material use
  • Novel concepts for biogas plants and types of reactors for degradation of fibrous organic material
  • Techniques to eliminate nitrogen in running processes enabling the degradation of nitrogen-rich organic materials
  • Anaerobic degradation of foliage as an alternative to composting
