You are invited to participate in the seminar “New technologies tackling the carbon crisis” organised by the Estonian Academy of Sciences and the ERA Chair in Gas Fermentation Technologies at University of Tartu.
The seminar introduces new technologies and focuses on gas fermentation as one of the key technology with significant potential towards combating the global carbon crisis through enabling the sustainable production of fuels and chemicals from waste feedstock (e.g. industrial waste gases, biomass, municipal solid waste, direct air captured CO2). Recently, the ERA Chair in Gas Fermentation Technologies (GasFermTEC) was established and a dedicated laboratory was built at the University of Tartu to lead research and engineering of microbial cell factories for gas fermentation in Estonia in collaboration with the leading biotechnology company LanzaTech. (USA). Furthermore, GasFermTEC aims to work towards industrial application of LanzaTech’s gas fermentation technologies in Estonia in cooperation with different governmental bodies, companies, and EU bio-economy funds, to provide solutions for major challenges in recycling waste feedstock. The seminar includes presentations from gas fermentation experts, scientists and policy makers. More information is available from the supplementary text (in Estonian).
We hope to see you at the seminar!
