About us

The Environmental Biotechnology Division of EFB acts for:

  • The (bio)monitoring and bioremediation of xenobiotic compounds occurring in soils, sediments, groundwater and wastewaters
  • The cleaning up and sanitizing drinking and waste-water, soil and air
  • The reconciliation of disposal and waste valorisation (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 Division can be summarised 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

Young scientist

Early-Stage Researchers in the Environmental Biotechnology Division of the European Federation of Biotechnology

One of the top priority of the Environmental Biotechnology Division society is to promote the involvement of young researchers to actively join the group and develop the future of Environmental Biotechnologies in Europe.

    Being a part of the Environmental Biotechnology Division community is a great opportunity:
  • To create young scientists’ networks and professional exchanges at a high scientific level to support your professional career.
  • To provide the possibilities for collaborations and opportunities for professional networking between researchers from international institutes and biotech companies.
  • To get support in your activities in the different areas of biotechnology covered by EFB.
  • To attend various scientific events and workshops related to your scientific interests at discounted price - participating in such meetings always forms new scientific friendships and debate on new ideas.
  • To share and discuss your work with the scientific community during conferences – for young researcher the EFB society offers awards for ‘Best oral communication’ or ‘Best poster presentation’.
  • To being updated by receiving the electronic newsletter with the latest developments in the field of biotechnology, important events and information about job opportunities and scholarships available in the various member institutions involved in EFB society.
