The Local Organizing Committee of the

1st International Conference on Biogas Microbiology

cordially invites all persons interested in any field of microbiological research related to biogas production to participate in the conference to be held in Leipzig, Germany, September 14th - September 16th, 2011.

Satisfying the ever increasing energy demand in a sustainable way, while avoiding further buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is one of the biggest challenges of the humankind today. Conversion of biomass into fuels and integration of anaerobic digestion into the treatment of various waste products is an excellent way to mineralize organic compounds meanwhile gaining energy rich biogas. However, most of the biogas plants worldwide operate at well below their optimal performance. Better understanding of the microbiology behind the biogas processes may provide important information for their improvements. On the other hand, the biogas process might be used as an excellent model system for rising basic ecological questions, investigating microbial networks and syntrophic interactions. The objectives of this focused meeting are to bring together experts of anaerobic digestion from all over the world and jointly produce progress in our understanding of the microbial processes behind biogas production, and to establish future collaborative research on this field.
