Bioconversion Group

Research Area 

The aim of the Bioconversion group is to develop carbon neutral waste teatment technologies and phosphorus mining from eutrophicated water environments while producing valuable products, using less energy. Research lines:

1) Biomethane, carboxylic acid and bioplastic production from different waste streams and model substrates in lab and pilot scale bioreactors

2) Developing bioengineering approach for phosphorus recovery from Baltic Sea

3) Developing synthetic community and microbial ecology of mixed culture for feedstock production  

4) Environmental assessment of early-design stage of resource recovery systems. 

In additon to these research lines, Bioconversion group is leading sewage monitoring project in Stockholm and Malmö as a part of SEEC.
