  • Book of Abstracts of CEB Annual Meeting 2017. Braga, 6 July, 13-13, 2017. ISBN: 978-989-97478-8-3


The replacement of fossil fuels by renewable energy sources is, nowadays, a worldwide priority. Gasification processes and further bioconversion of syngas appears to be a promising alternative compared to the existing chemical techniques, since this process convert renewable sources into alternative fuels and commodity chemicals, such as CH4, fatty acids, alcohols, etc., additionally contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gases [1]. Nearly any form of organic matter can be transformed through gasification, into syngas, mainly composed of CO, H2 and CO2. The biological conversion of syngas ...
