The research activities are carried out by the School of Biomedical Sciences Research Institute at Ulster University. The group has extensive experience regarding microbial fermentation production and characterisation, and all associated up and downstream processes linked to fermentation production. In the field of mycology expertise extends to fermentation, molecular biology of rhamnolipids biosurfactants, and all analytical techniques involved in the detection and quantifications of these molecules. BMSRI is furnished with a well equipped full microbiology, molecular biology and analytical chemistry laboratories.
Main tasks in the project
- Development of novel dispersants and sorbent materials (WP3)
- Apply selected biosurfactant/dispersants within multi-integrated agents (WP6)
