Industrial and agricultural waste conversion research


Idaho EPSCoR researchers convert industrial and agricultural waste into methane using organisms

Research assistant Daphne Groot and microbiologist Patricia Hartzell are researching the use of the thermophilic, anaerobic and sulfur-reducing organism Archaeon (Archaebacterium) (Archaeoglobus fulgidus) in converting industrial and agricultural waste materials into methane. Hartzell and Groot are participants in Idaho EPSCoR (Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research).

EPSCoR, a joint program between the National Science (NSF) and several U.S. states and territories, promotes the development of state science and technology resources through partnerships involving state universities, industry and government, as well as the federal research and development enterprise.

This work was developed under NSF grant OSR 93-50539. (Year of image: 1996)
