Cellular powerplant recycles waste gases

The idea is to use the power of bacteria to turn toxic waste gases into valuable compounds such as acetate or ethanol

19-Nov-2020

Carbon monoxide is a very poisonous gas. Humans die within minutes when they inhale it. However, some microorganisms tolerate carbon monoxide and even use it to breathe and replicate. Knowledge about how these bacteria survive opens a window into the primeval times of the earth and the origin of ...

All-in-one: New microbe degrades oil to gas

22-Aug-2019

Microscopy suggests that the recently discovered microbe Methanoliparia produces methane from crude oil all by themselves. The tiny organisms cling to oil droplets and perform a great feat: As a single organism, they may produce methane from oil by a process called alkane disproportionation. ...

Here comes the long-sought-after iron-munching microbe

26-Oct-2016

A microbe that ‘eats’ both methane and iron: microbiologists have long suspected its existence, but were not able to find it - until now. Researchers at Radboud University and the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology in Bremen discovered a microorganism that couples the reduction of iron ...

From the scent of roses to nylon and plastics

Enzyme for plastics production from renewable raw materials

25-Apr-2016

Beguiling scents, sober facts: scents emanating from plants are almost always monoterpenes and monoterpene alcohols, the essential oils of plants are natural hydrocarbon compounds. For instant, geraniol is the tempting fragrant alcohol of roses. Researchers of the Max Planck Institute for Marine ...

Massive amounts of charcoal enter the worlds' oceans

Wild fire residue is washed out of the soil and transported to the sea by rivers

23-Apr-2013

Wild fires turn millions of hectares of vegetation into charcoal each year. An international team of researchers led by Thorsten Dittgar from the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology in Bremen and Rudolf Jaffé from Florida International University's Southeast Environmental Research Center ...
