Methanotrophic microbiomes as drivers for environmental biotechnology

David van der Ha UGent (2013)
abstract
Since the industrial revolution, the average temperature on Earth has risen considerably, mainly due to the enormous emissions of greenhouse gases. This doctoral research focused on microbial mitigation strategies for methane (CH4), the second most important greenhouse gas after CO2. Therefore, methanotrophic microbiomes were used, the latter being entire microbial communities depending on CH4 for their activity. In a first phase, the effects of external growth parameters on the activity and structure of such communities were evaluated. Thereafter, research was done on the interactions taking place within the methanotrophic microbiomes, thereby proving that carbon fluxes take place between methanotrophs and associated microorganisms. Lastly, the methalgae concept was developed; by cocultivation of methanotrophs and algae, it was possible to treat CO2 and CH4 simultaneously under anoxic conditions.
