  • The effect of red mud on soil biota (OTKA PD_16)

    Project titleThe effect of red mud on soil biota

    Funding Programme: OTKA PD_16

    Funding Agency: National Research, Development and Innovation Office

    Project Identification Number: PD 121172

    Project duration:  2016.10.01. –  2019.09.30.

    Project type: Postdoc project (non-consortial)

    Project partner: BME, Applied Biotechnology and Food Science Department (Research location)

    Summary: Red mud is the residue of aluminium production from bauxite. Red mud may have several reuse options, one of which its agronomical application, for example for improvement of sandy soils.  So far there are still scarce information abut the effect of red mud on soil biological activity. The main aim of the project is to gain an understanding on how red mud affects the activity and living conditions of soil biota and to determine the connections amongst the short- and long-term physical, chemical and biological changes in the red mud treated soils.

  • Development and application of an innovative technology for removal of organic micropollutants (TÉT_FR_16)

    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.
