Title (EN) IN-SITU ELECTRICAL STIMULATION OF BIOCONVERSION OF CARBON-BEARING FORMATIONS
(FR) STIMULATION ÉLECTRIQUE IN SITU DE LA BIOCONVERSION DE FORMATIONS CARBONÉES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods of stimulating microbial consortia, such as microbial consortia in a geological formation, such as comprising methanogens and other bacteria, for producing methane and other fuels or fuel precursors from coal or other carbonaceous materials, are disclosed along with methods for increasing bioconversion of carbonaceous materials, such as coal, into methane and other useful hydrocarbon products, wherein the consortia respond to electrical stimulation, either physical or chemical.
(FR)Cette invention concerne des procédés de stimulation de consortiums microbiens, tels que des consortiums microbiens dans une formation géologique, comprenant par exemple des méthanogènes et d'autres bactéries, pour produire du méthane et d'autres combustibles ou des précurseurs de combustibles à partir de charbon ou d'autres matériaux carbonés, et concerne également des procédés pour augmenter la bioconversion de matériaux carbonés, tels que le charbon, en méthane et en d'autres produits hydrocarbonés utiles, les consortiums réagissant à une stimulation électrique, soit physique, soit chimique.
