Researchers identify a type of bacteria that eats low volumes of methane … A team of chemical engineers at the University of Washington, working with a pair of colleagues from the U.S. Naval Academy, has identified a type of bacteria that eats low concentrations of methane. The study is reported in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences,.
Prior research has shown that there are many types of bacteria that eat methane, producing carbon dioxide as a byproduct, but until now, they have been found to do so only when there is an excess of methane around them. This limits their use as a methane sink.
In this new study, the researchers found a type of bacteria—Methylotuvimicrobium buryatense 5GB1C—that not only consumes methane at low volume levels, but thrives to the extent that it can increase its own numbers. It was also found to consume methane at faster rates than other bacteria.
