Project title: Development and application of an innovative technology for removal of organic micropollutants
Funding Programme: Hungarian-French Bilateral Scientific and Technological Collaboration, TÉT_FR_16
Funding Agency: National Research, Development and Innovation Office
Project Identification Number: TÉT_16-1-2016-0107
Project duration: 2017.01.01 – 2018.12.31
Project type: bilateral cooperation
Project partner: École Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Rennes, L’Equipe Chimie et Ingénierie des Procédés, https://www.ensc-rennes.fr/recherche/equipe-cip/
Summary: The project aims at developing efficient biodegradation methods for removal of micropollutants from water. The target emerging micropollutants are primarily traces of pharmaceuticals which even though occur only at low concentrations (μg/l or ng/l) they may have specific adverse effects at cell and molecular level. The target is development of a bioaugmentation technology with the utilisation of exogene microbial phyla or communities.
