  • Mission

    The Environmental Biotechnology section of EFB acts for:

    • The (bio)monitoring and bioremediation of xenobiotic compounds occurring in soils, sediments, groundwater and wastewaters
    • The cleaning up and sanitizing waste- and drinking water, soil and air
    • The reconciliation of disposal and waste valorization (biorefinery concept) of by-products, wastes, effluents from the agro-food industry with the production of bio-based chemicals, materials and fuels
    • The development of novel strategies such as the CO2 biocapture, etc.

    The mission of the section can be summarized as follows:

    • To identify the most prominent European R&D priorities and stakeholder needs in the area of sustainable bioremediation of contaminated sites and wastewaters, biowaste biorefining, water sanitation, CO2 fixation, etc.
    • To promote such priorities and needs towards the European Commission, the OECD, the European Technology Platforms and other European Agencies dealing with environmental protection and restoration
    • Develop both scientific-sound and modern engineering aspects of environmental biotechnology together with the private sector
    • To support and organise international conferences on Environmental Biotechnology in Europe and partner Countries
