Biomass Project Research Center, Hiroshima University, and HOSTY Association are co-organizing the Hiroshima University Biomass Evening Seminar. This seminar covers topics from the fundamentals of biomass to the latest information so that it can contribute the activities on biomass in this district. The 76th seminar will be held as follows. Please join.

“Short-chain ester production by Nitratireductor sp. OM-1 using wastewater
Results from HU-DTU collaboration”
Nitratireductor sp. OM-1 is a short-chain ester producing bacterium assimilating short-chain fatty acids found in wastewater. We, therefore, expected short-chain ester production by strain OM-1 using wastewater, however it was inhibited by ammonium in wastewater.
Professor Angelidaki and Dr. Zhan in Technical University of Denmark (DTU) have studied on ammonium removal in electrochemical reactor, so that I asked them to help our study and stayed at DTU to learn the experimental design and to discuss our collaborations.
This presentation will report some results from our collaborations.

“What are uncultivable microorganisms and how to grow them?”
Although highly diverse microorganisms exist in natural environments, it is generally recognized that most microorganisms are not readily cultivable in the laboratory. Thus, most of them are remaining untapped, unknown, and unused, in spite of its industrial, medical and scientific importance and potential. Therefore, innovations in microbial cultivation will have an impact on variety of fields. In this talk, I will introduce our recent progress on development of new cultivation methods and clarification of previously unknown growth controlling mechanisms.
We will hold the discussion meeting from 18:00 (800 JPY needed). Join this meeting, too if you are available.
