The Carbon Recycling Network

The Carbon Recycling Network is one of 6 Networks in Industrial Biotechnology & Bioenergy funded by the BBSRC (BBSRC-NIBB) to encourage the growth of Industrial Biotechnology in the UK.


The Carbon Recycling Network will promote those aspects of carbon recycling that support the re-use and exploitation of single carbon (C1) greenhouse gases, CO, CO2 and CH4.  The focus is on gas fermentation, primarily using chemoautotrophs, and seeks to explore the potential of anaerobic digestion (AD) as a gas fermentation feedstock generator.

The Carbon Recycling Network has funding for research projects, conferences, studentships, workshops and outreach.
