BioRemid 2017, Granada, Spain 9th/10th March 2017
BioRemid 2017, organised jointly by the Water Research Institute of the University of Granada and the Biodeterioration, Biodegradation and Bioremediation Group of the Spanish Society of Microbiology, is being held in Granada on 9th and 10th March 2017.
The objective of the meeting is to bring together scientists and industry professionals in a friendly environment to share the latest developments and innovations to combat environmental problems. In particular, topics about emerging and priority pollutants, consortium-based strategies, and identification and monitoring of biohazards will be discussed. Other topics such as biosafety and new technologies including nanoparticles will be also considered in depth. We encourage high quality oral presentations in the most relevant topics on bioremediation.
