Abstract: 

Fossil fuels are still the major global energy resource. Their use is associated with the progressive decrease of existing reserves, and their combustion results in emission of greenhouse gases, which are implicated in global warming.(…) In this project we will work with one Fdh, from a sulfate-reducing bacterium (SRB), involved in the conversion of CO2 to formate: the W-binding FdhAB that is suitable for electrocatalytic studies and reduces CO2.
