Lectures:

The conversion of solar energy during photosynthesis as an alternative way of producing clean solar fuel – possible direction of research. The production of first generation biofuels (ethanol, biodiesel and biogas) and the production perspectives in large scale. Open and closed bioreactors for the production of biomass from algae and cyanobacteria. Production of bioethanol from cellulosic biomass – traditional and modern methods of cellulose utilization by cellulolytic and ethanogenic microorganisms. Methods of biohydrogen synthesis by photosynthetic microorganisms: direct and indirect biophotolysis. Photofermentation and dark fermentation employed for biohydrogen production. The structure and the activity of hydrogenases and nitrogenases; biohydrogen formation mechanism. Alternative approach to biohydrogen production (e.g. artificial photosythetic systems, photoelectochemical cells). Integrated systems of biohydrogen production. Production of biofuels and energy from organic waste. Microbial fuel cells.

Classes:

(1) cultivation of microorganisms employed in biofuel production (cellulolytic aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, microalgae used in biodiesel production, purple non-sulphur bacteria capable of hydrogen production) (2) production of cellulases by cellulolytic bacteria and cellulase activity assays; (3) analysis of cellulose degradation products by HPLC with UV and RI detection; (4) measurement of PNS nitrogenase activity; (5) lipids extraction from algae and production of biodiesel from plant oil; (6) PCR amplification and gel electrophoresis of nitrogenase gene coding NifK subunit

Seminars:

Optimisation of algal growth in closed bioreactors. Genetic engineering for improved TAGs production. Alternative ways of cellulose utilization and hydrogen production from cellulose. Protein engineering in the

process of converting lignocellulose to biofuels. Modification of lignin production and lignin decomposition. Artificial hydrogenases and artificial systems of water photolysis. Proton pumps used for biofuel production. Purple non-sulphur bacteria used for biohydrogen production. Microbial fuels cells. Bioelectrochemical systems for the production of electricity from sediments. Integrated systems of hydrogen production. Economic, political and ecological aspects of biofuel production.
