Project 4

Design Principles and Field-Deployable Models for Economical Remediation of Dioxin-Contaminated Sites

Some anaerobic bacteria are capable of breathing dioxins. This project aims to leverage this capability to develop integrated methods for economical clean-up of dioxin-contaminated sites. Key advancements include reduction in time to clean-up and toxicity, development of biomarkers indicative of the rates, and establishment of decision-making tools.
