NCIMB Supports Carbon Recycling Network Annual Conference

We’re delighted to be sponsoring drinks at the The Carbon Recycling Network annual conference in March 2024. The goal of this BBSRC-NIBB is to create a vibrant community of UK researchers who will unravel the biological, chemical and process engineering aspects of carbon recycling that that support the re-use and exploitation of greenhouse gases CO, CO2 and CH4. The conference will take place over three days and bring together academic and industrial partners to identify and address key challenges in this area of carbon recycling.

Two of the greatest challenges facing society today are sustainable production of chemicals, fuels, and protein for animal feed, alongside the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Single carbon gases generated either as side products of existing industrial processes or through processing of biomass wastes could provide a high-volume, low-cost feedstock for UK production of these essential commodities, with microorganisms playing a key role though processes such as gas fermentation and anaerobic digestion.

NCIMB’s CEO Dr Edward Green said: “NCIMB offers a package of microbiology products and services that support the development of microbial processes for carbon recycling, so we are pleased to be associated with this event. For example, we hold the UK’s largest culture collection of industrially useful bacteria, including robust candidates for gas fermentation and single cell protein. At NCIMB we have long believed that our culture collection includes strains that could pave the way to solving many of the big issues that society faces, so I am looking forward to attending this event, and learning more about the requirement of researchers in this important field”.

Please get in touch if you would like to learn more about our microbial culture collection, sequencing, identification, qPCR or strain storage services.
