Worldwide remediation of mercury hazards through biotechnology Acronym
- evaluate the applicability of the microbe based technology for clean-up of contaminated environments worldwide;
- monitor the longterm performance of the first industrial microbe based mercury removal plant,
- compare costs, safety and efficiency of the biotechnological approach with traditional methods;
- transfer knowledge into developing countries where the problems are most urgent;
- exchange information with US agencies.
These goals shall be approached by an international consortium which will first conduct case studies on hot spots of pollution as well as on current mercury emitting industries, taking into account technology offers. On this basis, integrated engineering concepts will be developed. They will be communicated to governments and International Agencies with the aim of implementing demonstration or remediation projects.
