Enhanced In Situ Bioremediation for Contaminated Land Remediation
Realization period:01.01. 2021 – 31.12. 2024
Leader at TUL:Ing. Jaroslav Nosek, Ph.D.
The Enhanced Innovative In Situ Biotechnologies for Contaminated Land Remediation (EiCLaR)” project integrates biological and non-biological processes to extend the sustainability and cost effectiveness benefits of in situ bioremediation (ISBR) to a far wider range of land contamination problems.
Bioremediation of contaminated sites has grown exponentially since the early 1990’s, but the applications of different biotechnologies have levelled off in part because of their inability to deal with complex environments in a rapid and competitive manner. Our objective is to lift biotechnologies to new performance levels through the fusion of these approaches with non-biological processes. Targeting difficult and/or complex contaminant mixtures and sites, we will develop and market innovative biotechnologies for contaminant destruction. We will produce cutting-edge, effective, and sustainable remediation alternatives, capable of practical and commercial deployment within three years after EiCLaR is completed.
