Abstract: Microbiological methods of obtaining alternative fuels from syn-gas, producible from different available sources such as natural gas, coal and organic biomass are considered. Syn-gas can be processed into liquid fuels by microbiological methods, based on the use of CO-consuming organisms producing spirits and salts of fatty acids. Microbiological conversion of syn-gas into hydrogen with the following microbiological processing of the obtained hydrogen can be one of the stages of liquid fuels production.
