Microbiology and Technology Nexus in Anaerobic Biotechnologies

About this Research Topic

Anaerobic microbially-mediated technologies provide a cost-effective alternative to physical and chemical processes for both sanitation and resource recovery purposes. However, the application of these biotechnologies is constrained by the capacity to predict and control process performance due to the still limited knowledge and control of the underpinning microbiology.

In the last few years, considerable research efforts have been devoted to establishing a sound nexus between the operational conditions, the process performance and the microbial community. This knowledge aims to advance mixed-culture anaerobic biotechnologies efficiency and flexibility to the next level from which support the implementation of a reliable and profitable biobased economy and achieve a sustainable society.

This Research Topic welcomes Original Research and Review articles aiming to bridge the gap between microbial ecology and process engineering in anaerobic biotechnologies including, but not limited, to the following:
- Anaerobic digestion
- Anaerobic fermentation
- Biohydrogen production
- Microbial electrochemistry
- Chain elongation
- Sulphate reduction technology

Please note that merely descriptive articles will be considered out of scope.


Keywords: Anaerobic microbiology, Anaerobic biotechnologies, Microbial ecology, Biogas technology, Mixed-culture fermentation, Electromicrobiology, Chain elongation, Sulphate reduction


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
