Sustainability & Environmental Systems

We study various environmental and sustainability challenges. Our research is science and praxis-oriented, as we work together with other research institutions and industry. Our goal is to broaden our expertise and work with the state-of-the-art challenges on the topics listed below.

Our multidisciplinary research experience on the topics of microbial biotechnology, environment and medicine helps us to broaden our research interests within environmental and industrial biotechnology. We focus our research on knowledge-based circular bioeconomy. Environmental and industrial biotechnology is closely linked to our other research areas, as waste valorisation, system’s decarbonisation and microbial metabolism modeling, and management of the systems are an integral part of the biotechnology.
