Towards a microbiological diagnosis of polluted industrial sites
BIODISSPOL project: Microbial Biomarkers, Diagnostics and applicability for the management of industrial polluted sites.
BioDISSPOL the project selected and funded by ADEME, aims to demonstrate the operability and applicability of microbial molecular biomarkers for monitoring and characterization of contaminated with chlorinated solvents to improve the diagnosis, monitoring and follow-up remediation of these sites.
The information obtained with the microbial molecular biomarkers will be associated with isotopic approaches that allows the detection of a biological degradation of chlorinated solvents in situ. This project aims to define microbiological indicators of pollution, monitor cleanup process(es) and to propose new approaches for remediation through microbial agents use.
