Technology updates - biorefineries 1

Biorefineries:  It is increasingly recognised that there are great benefits in integrating complementary microbial technologies such as anaerobic digestion, composting and microalgae cultivation. Integration – in the form of a biorefinery – can result in improved efficiency, reduced operating costs, and the production of a wider range of high-value products. Biorefineries can also use greenhouse gases (CO2 and CH4) as feedstocks.
