The strain has been deposited in the in Russian National Collection of Industrial Microorganisms and it has a high technological potential, in particular:
- augmented stability to co-oxidation products of methane homologs of natural gas, it allows to use natural gas of different composition and broaden the range of raw materials resources for industrial process;
- ability to heterotrophic carbon dioxide fixation, that ensures a lower economic consumption ratio of the substrate (methane);
- resistant to short-term temperature and pressure differential;
- competitive ability against other types of methane-oxidizing bacteria;
- is thermotolerant;
- is neither pathogenic, nor genetically modified. It does not contain genes of other organisms.
