About us

Strange but true: the story of MicroPyros literally begins 2.7 billion years ago, with the evolution of our most important “employees”, the archaea. But it was not before 1980 that one of our founders, Prof. Dr. Robert Huber, pioneered the archaea research.

Discovering the power and the importance of these primordial microorganisms is our company’s cornerstone, essential for our role in the global energy transition. With today’s MicroPyros BioEnerTec Company, newly founded in May 2021, we take the processes of biomethanation to the next, industry-scale level.
