Microbe buddies convert heat- trapping methane to energy


Researchers from the Department of Energy at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) have recently discovered that the ubiquitous heat-trapping methane gas can be converted into beneficial and environmental-friendly energy by simply creating a harmonious environment for two very different microbes.

Per biotechnology news portal Bionity.com on April 13, the discovery published in the Bioresource Technology journal in Mar 2017 highlighted the conversion of methane into energy-rich jelly whose colour resemble
