New system-driven bioremediation of polluted habitats and environment (NYMPHE)

European ComissionPartner
Biological organisms, including the smallest, can play a big role in restoring polluted environments. They remove or neutralise an environmental pollutant from soil or water in a process called bioremediation. The EU-funded Nymphe project will take this process to a new level. Specifically, it will develop bioremediation/revitalisation strategie...
