Main aim of this research project is the characterization of the microbial metabolic activities in semi-continuously operated biogas fermenters by the detection of predominant occurring microbial proteins and enzymes. The results of this study will be used for the development of strategies to support the microbial hydrolysis of renewable resources by multi-criteria optimization. In particular, the targeted addition of supplementary enzymes of fungal origin complementary to the endogenic hydrolytic potential present in the biogas fermenters will be analyzed. In sub-project II, analyses of the microbial systems present in the biogas fermenters operated in sub-project I will be conducted. Aim of sub-project II is the determination of the microbial community structure at taxonomic and functional level, the monitoring of alterations in the structure during the ongoing fermentations with special focus on the process variations, and the detection of variations in the metabolic activity of the microbial community.
