Microbial Degradation of Pollutants

Microbial Degradation of Pollutants

Title: In situ characterization of microbial degraders of Triclosan and Methyl-Triclosan from wastewater treatment plants

The aim of this project is to identify microorganisms in sludge and the environment able to degrade Triclosan and related compounds by microautoradiography and stable isotope probing as well as to identify the conditions favorable for complete elimination of triclosan (mineralisation).
