It started operating in 2002, when Alex Krajete left for California with a degree in chemistry under his belt obtained from the University of Innsbruck. After a PhD at Berkeley University, at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena the Austrian researcher started investigating the transformation of CO2 into methane by using microorganisms. He struck gold in this research field. So much so that back in Europe, Dr. Krajete carried on his studies turning them into a business, first a one-man company (2011) and then Krajete GmbH (2012), where five more researchers with a PhD joined him. Collectively, they primarily research into the use of CO2 but also into synthesis gas (a blend of carbon monoxide, CO, and hydrogen, H2), for the production of methane a...
