Industrial and environmental biotechnologies and fluid dynamics

lab

Includes research activities in the fields of biotechnologies, chemical engineering and fluid dynamics, addressed to both industrial and environmental applications.

The research activities carried out in the framework of industrial biotechnologies concern mainly the development, optimization and simulation of processes for the production and recovery of new biomolecules, biopolymers and biofuels from agro-industrial and/or polluted organic residues, possibly by using microorganisms selected from non-conventional habitats; the activities related to environmental biotechnologies include degradation/valorization of conventional plastics and microplastics, biological treatments of contaminated matrices, wastewater treatment and valorization and plant management.

Researches of applied fluid dynamics and mixing integrate the development of studied biotechnological processes.
