Upcoming Event: EU Bioremediation Projects Cluster Workshop at BioBio 2024

The Potential of Bioremediation for Clean Soils and Groundwater in Europe

Official Event of the BioBio 2024 EU Bioremediation Project Cluster

We are pleased to announce the 2nd Workshop of the EU Bioremediation Projects Cluster, taking place during BioBio 2024 – the 7th International Symposium on Biosorption and Biodegradation/Bioremediation, on 20 June 2024, in Prague, Czech Republic.


Launched in early 2023, our cluster includes six key bioremediation projects funded by the European Commission: MIBIREM, SYMBIOREM, BIOSYSMO, NYMPHE, EDAPHOS, and ISLANDR. This workshop will highlight the potential of bioremediation to improve soil health, clean groundwater, and enhance air quality. Bioremediation uses natural processes and microorganisms to remove contaminants without harming ecosystems.

Thomas Reichenauer, the scientific coordinator of the MIBIREM project from the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology in Austria, will share the latest advancements of the project. Other partners from the EU bioremediation cluster will also present, covering topics such as:

  • The use and release of bacteria, microbes, and GMOs for (bio-)remediation purposes – addressing environmental, toxicological, societal, and policy implications.
  • Different scientific approaches to (bio-)remediation, including classical enrichment, single strain, or artificial bacteria microbiomes.
  • Implementation and regulation barriers when considering the scale-up or large-scale implementation of various (bio-)remediation systems.

This workshop provides a platform for sharing knowledge and discussing the future of bioremediation in Europe. We look forward to connecting with everyone in Prague and working together towards a cleaner environment.
