Advanced Course on Environmental Biotechnology

Date: 25 May 2021 - 04 June 2021
Location: Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands

Course frequency: every year

Short Course Description

Course organised by Biotechnological Sciences Delft Leiden (BSDL). The course integrates appropriate aspects of microbiology and biochemical engineering with consideration of practical applications towards process design and scale-up. The advantages and pitfalls of applying biotechnological methods to environmental problems will be emphasized. Microbiological topics include thermodynamics, kinetics and ecophysiology of pure and mixed cultures, (geo)biochemical element cycles and biofilm formation.

Environmental Biotechnology is a rapidly developing, increasingly important branch of science that has implications for both the prevention and clean up of pollution in domestic and industrial waste streams. This international training course will introduce mixed microbial culture theory and reactor technology in relation to the design and scale-up of advanced treatment processes from the laboratory to the full scale implementation.
