  • Project Description

    The project “Bio-UGS“ investigates the targeted conversion of carbon dioxide and green hydrogen to methane in underground gas storage facilities by using natural existing microorganisms. This shall reduce the dependency from imported fossil carbons, as well as develop a circular economy for CO2 from industrial processes and a storage concept for hydrogen from renewable energies.
