Webinar 4: Biobased molecules from waste

From now on, you can watch the recording of the webinar on Biobased molecules from waste. In the BIOCTANE process, Eric Trably, Research Director at INRAE – Environmental Biotechnology Laboratory carries out a dark fermentation step of the organic waste used as feedstock. This biomass will be fermented by a mixed microbial consortium under slightly acidic conditions and in absence of external electron acceptor. This treatment step will result in a concentrated mixture of carboxylic acids (mostly propionic, butyric and acetic acids), while hydrogen and carbon dioxide will also be collected as gaseous co-products. During this webinar, Professor Trably presents the fundamentals and advantages of applying thesee process steps within the BIOCTANE process and how they can be successfully transferred to various other applications:
