EXPLOITING METAL-MICROBE APPLICATIONS TO EXPAND THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Project description

Of microbes and metals in a circular economy

Metals are an essential part of daily life and are even required by life itself – but metal sources are finite and irreplaceable. What metals do microbes need and how can these metal-microbe interactions be exploited? Where do metals fit in the circular bioeconomy? The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions M2ex project is a multidisciplinary, Innovative Training Network bringing together a team of world-leading, European researchers with expertise in chemistry, microbiology, environmental engineering and mathematical modeling to study the application in the bioeconomy of microbially-mediated processes underpinned by metals. Focussing on the field of anaerobic bioprocesses, waste reduction and re-utilisation, and resource recovery, the project will deliver doctoral training to 15 early-stage researchers (ESRs) as well as a range of high-impact scientific outputs to advance the development of Europe’s bioeconomy.
