Have a look on our last publication in Biotechnology Letters

Check out our new publication in Springer's Biotechnology Letters. Here we showed that granular mesophilic sludge can be used to treat agroindustrial effluents under thermophilic conditions without requiring sequential temperature increases (usually long and tedious procedures). One-step temperature increase from 35°C to 55°C led to improvements in methane production.

Have a look on our new paper

Check out our new paper in Wiley's Journal of Chemical Technology & Biotechnology


















There is a lack of kinetic data of microalgal cultures. However, such information is quite relevant for the design and optimization of microalgal-based processes such as biogas upgrading technologies and CO2 removal from flue gases. Here we present a simple and reliable methodology to perform the kinetic characterization of microalgal cultures.

Great time in Spain!!

Great time in Coruña where we attended the 7th Biotechniques for Air Pollution Control and Bioenergy Conference. We also presented the current reseach lines of the Engineering Institute of UNAM - Juriquilla Academic Unit at the University of Valladolid. Here some pictures.

Have a look on our new paper in Journal of Chemical Technology & Biotechnology

Our recently accepted paper in Wiley's Journal of Chemical Technology & Biotechnology reports that the height-to-diameter ratio in biotrickling filters should be optimized to enhance their mixing and mass transfer performance. This work was the result of our collaboration with the University of Valencia and the Mexiquense University


Effect of the height-to-diameter ratio on the mass transfer and mixing performance of a biotrickling filter

New research focused on the purification of biogas highly laden with H2S

Wine industry in Mexico is growing each year and wine vinasses constitute an excelent source for biogas production. However, the resulting biogas is highly laden with H2S. To enable the use of this biogas for energy generation we are currently running innovative high-rate desulfuration systems. Keep in touch with us if you are interested in this research line!

Nice time in CINVESTAV

Graduated students meeting of the Department of Biotechnology & Bioengineering at CINVESTAV in Mexico City. It was a great pleasure to see professors and colleagues. We were discussing on the challenges this prestigious institution is facing towards maintaining the highest level in its programs.

Great time in Guadalajara

We had a nice time in Guadalajara Mexico during the meeting of the Gaseous Biofuels Cluster of the Mexican Center for Energy Innovation (CEMIE-BIO). Impossible to lose the opportunity of tasting the local "Birria", a typical dish of Jalisco.
