MIBIREM – Toolbox for Microbiome based Remediation

Project description

Innovative technological toolbox for bioremediation

Hundreds of thousands of contaminated sites, posing a significant risk to humans and the environment, require innovative cleaning technologies, as conventional remediation is often too expensive and inefficient. Biotechnological remediation employs the use of living organisms, mostly microbes and bacteria, in the removal of contaminants from the environment. The EU-funded MIBIREM project will develop a unique toolbox for highly efficient bioremediation environmental applications of microbiomes. The project will develop molecular methods for the monitoring, isolation, cultivation and subsequent deposition of whole microbiomes. The toolbox will also include the methodology for the improvement of specific microbiome functions, including evolution and enrichment. The performance of selected microbiomes will be tested under real field conditions.
