With the support of microorganisms, contaminated sites can be remediated in a resource-saving manner.

Careless or inappropriate handling of chemicals has contaminated a variety of sites in the past. In order to avert possible dangers for the environment a renovation is necessary, and to make these areas usable again for future generations.

As an alternative to conventional remediation procedures, biological processes are of interest for two reasons. On the one hand, biological remediation procedures are often gentler and require less drastic intervention at the site. On the other hand, these methods can also be preferred for reasons of cost.
