Microbial metabolism

  • Control of rumen methanogenesis

Lanupro cooperates with national and international research institutes to investigate ruminant methane mitigation through various nutritional approaches. Both in vitro (batch incubation technique, microbial community assessment) as well as in vivo trials are performed for this purpose. Research also involves exploring early life programming techniques for long-term mitigation effects.

  • Control of ammonia emissions

The hypothesis testing are that fermentable dietary fibers, based on locally available resources, can mitigate ammonia emissions from pig manure and these manure are going to use as substrate for earth worm production which could further reduce ammonia

  • Microbial fatty acid metabolism

Research under this subunit aims at characterizing the bacteria involved in the metabolism of unsaturated fatty acids. For this, different approaches are conducted in mixed cultures of rumen microorganisms as well as in pure cultures. Analysis of the microbial community, fatty acid profile and novel isolation techniques are applied.


Services offered by Lanupro: in vitro simulations, in vivo trials, fatty acid analysis
