The Spanish environmental biomolecular analysis company is looking for partners to complete its experiments to develop new solutions to improve the bioremediation of hydrocarbon-contaminated soils. The company is looking for partners who work with bioreactors and can provide microbial samples. The company is ready to work with partners under a service agreement or technical cooperation agreement.
The project, which the company is developing, aims to demonstrate innovative genetic techniques (also called metasequencing, metagenetics, or metabarcoding) to understand the factors that influence the biological transformation of pollutants. The microorganisms involved in the process are analyzed by biogenetic / taxonomic methods to identify the mechanisms for increasing their biostimulation. Thus, in addition to the microorganisms present in biological strains, the company’s proposed process takes into account the activity of genes involved in the degradation of these compounds.
With the information that will be collected within the project, it will be possible to make time projections to control the operation of bioreactors in order to produce highly efficient microorganisms.
Similar studies are being carried out all over the world, many of them at a research level, with very little results. As part of the project, the Spanish company intends to conduct research focused on solving the problems related to bioremediation facing the current market. If the project is successful, the company will gain a great competitive advantage in the form of actually operating bioreactors.
