A method of converting glycerol to 1,3-propanediol in a thermophilic Caloramator viterbiensis, the method comprising culturing a thermophilic Caloramator viterbiensis that ferments glycerol to 1,3-propanediol under conditions such that 1,3-propanediol is produced; and a method of producing 1,3-propanediol from glycerol comprising: (a) incubating glycerol with a thermostable dehydratase enzyme derived from a Caloramator viterbiensis; (b) converting the glycerol to 3-hydroxypropionaldehyde; and (c) adding a reducing agent capable of reducing 3-hydroxypropionaldehyde to 1,3- propanediol.
