Innovative bioremediation technologies
Biotechnology plays a central role in the elimination of several pollutants and mixtures in contaminated wastewater, groundwater, soil and sediment. The EU-funded ELECTRA project will deliver two innovative sets of pioneering electromicrobiology technologies aiming to accelerate the elimination of pollutants in contaminated soil, sediment and waters. The project relies on environmental technologies that facilitate and improve electron transfer during microbial degradation processes. The first set uses bioelectrochemical systems that require low energy and no chemical addition. The second uses electromicrobial technologies that do not require energy and need minimal chemical amendment. The project is an EU-China research and technological development joint initiative profiting from recent innovations in biotechnology for the development of environmental bioremediation applications.
