Research: Biological methane potential

 

Anaerobic Digestion love song:

“Microbe Like You” Parody of Adele’s “Someone Like You” Andrew Kim, December 2015, Angenent Lab, Cornell

Parody lyrics:

I heard that you’ve settled out

That you’re solid sludge and you’re treated now

I heard that you’re broken down into methane gas, and some CO2

Oxygen, why are you toxic?

To my anaerobic, mixed communities

Hydrolysis breaks down, macromolecules that form carboxylic acids, and acetate by acetogenesis, and finally degraded to methane, methanogenesis

Never mind, I’ll find a microbe like you I wish I could make methane from poo, too Anaerobic, digestion, for your sewage and food

Just give me all your waste, to feed my methanogens

Just give me all your waste, to feed my methanogens

You know how the two types of methanogens create biogas

Acetoclastic cleaves an acetate while hydrogenotrophic use H2

Hydrolysis breaks down, macromolecules that form carboxylic acids, and acetate by acetogenesis, and finally degraded to methane, methanogenesis

Never mind, I’ll find a microbe like you I wish I could make methane from poo, too

Anaerobic, digestion, for your sewage and food

Just give me all your waste, to feed my methanogens, yeah

Nothing compares, to bio-treatment

Wastewater sludge--that’s energy made

Who would have known how terrible this would smell?

Never mind, I’ll find a microbe like you I wish I could make methane from poo, too

Anaerobic, digestion, for your sewage and food

Just give me all your waste, to feed my methanogens

Never mind, I’ll find a microbe like you I wish I could make methane from poo, too

Anaerobic, digestion, for your sewage and food

Just give me all your shit, to feed my methanogens

I’m tired of all your shit, but not my methanogens
