Eduardo Pinela
Active in research on the microbiology of anaerobic processes and fermentation technologies both to produce added-value compounds as well as biomass for different industries.


My project concerns direct interspecies electron transfer (DIET) between syntrophic acid-oxidizing bacteria (SAOB) and hydrogenotrophic methanogens and its links to floc formation and increased biogas production in industrial settings. My main drive as a researcher is to efficiently utilize the resources that there are available and to, through metabolic processes present in microorganisms, convert them in added-value products applying, whenever possible, a circular-based model of utilization of resources and products.


Student of Teaching in Higher Education, course assistant in Genetics, Cell Biology and Microbiology (course BI1278) and tutor in different subjects and levels of education.

Environmental analysis

Research important for the environment given the potential that biogas has to replace fossil natural gas and its very low environmental impact (could even be emission-free depending on the substrate used).


Cooperation in some research experiments with Tekniska Verken i Linköping, AB.


Bachelor's Degree in Biology - Branch of Cellular Biology and Biotechnology, at Lisbon University, Lisbon, Portugal

6-month internship in the Plant Biotechnology Lab, in a gene repair project in plants, at Pavia University, Pavia, Italy

Master's Degree in Applied Biotechnology, at Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden (Master thesis performed at Necton S.A., Olhão, Portugal, in industrial production of microalgae for fucoxanthin and PUFA production)

Amateur beer- and kombucha brewer.
