Symbiotic, circular bioremediation systems and biotechnology solutions for improved environmental, economic and social sustainability in pollution control
Eutrophication as well as accumulation of organic pollutants and heavy metals are the major challenges for all European seas. Furthermore, the recovery of raw materials (i.e. phosphorus, metals) from the marine environment has a growing interest in the recent years. This project (SYMBIOREM) will be the first to develop an integrated remediation and valorisation technology for nutrient and metals-rich marine sediments: a cascade bioreactor system that remediates PAH while also recovering phosphorus and metals from highly polluted marine sediments. By investigating microbiome exploitation potentials, SYMBIOREM also fills key knowledge gaps needed for successful biostimulation and bioaugmentation strategies to be applied successfully to European seas.
