Thursday, 05 March 2015

Ms Frauke Kracke, Dr. Bernardino Virdis and Dr. Jens Krömer, contributed to a concept article featuring on the front page of the important ChemSusChem journal. Co-author Frauke Kracke designed the front cover artwork depicting the present fuel based society and a future greener world built on renewable energy sources.

The concept article explains the current benefits and limitations of using electric energy and biomass for the production of fuels and chemicals and illustrates microbial electrochemical technologies’ potential to contribute to a more sustainable society. In the article the authors show for the first time, by the example of an established fermentation process, that applying the technology in bio-production can offer economic incentives.
