We focus on integrating technologies to sustainably produce biofuels and biobased products. The goal is to design fermentation and enzymatic conversion systems that will facilitate continuous product recovery. Currently we work on organic acids and alcohols. Recent work has
focused on:
* Anaerobic bacteria that utilize C1 compounds (H2, CO, and CO2)
* Enzyme and cell supported systems for biocatalyst stability and product separations
* Restricting nutrient requirements in fermentations

Other areas of interest are
* Metabolic engineering for novel biobased products
* Increased productivity in methanogenic communities

The team brings together unique capabilities from microbiology through chemical engineering to address these issues.
