The University Institute of Water Research of the UGR participated in the 2nd BioRemid2019 congress in Porto (Portugal) with an Exhibition and a Poster of results

The University of Granada, through the Institute of Water Research of the University, showed in the 2nd Congress “International Meeting on New Strategies in Bioremediation Processes (BioRemid2019)”, located in Porto (Portugal), the results and the research progress achieved in the LIFE ECOGRANULARWATER project.

On 24th and 25th of October 2019, the Institute of Water Research attended the 2nd International Congress called “International Meeting on New Strategies in Bioremediation Processes (BioRemid2019)” in Porto (Portugal). During this congress, the LIFE ECOGRANULARWATER Researcher group Jesús González-López, Alejandro González-Martínez, Clementina Pozo-Llorente and Belén Rodelas-González were able to share the experiences gained during the research project, in order to exchange experiences with other international research groups

In addition, they showed an oral presention entitled “Organic carbon source effect over the performance and the microbial community in a groundwater denitrifying granular sludge bioreactor” and a poster entitled: “Physico-chemical performance and microbial characterization of granular sludge” system for groundwater denitrification”.

Therefore, this congress proved to be an opportunity to meet with scientists and industry professionals, to share the latest developments and innovations in environmental problems related to water issues. In this way, It allowed to Discuss issues such as, identification and monitoring of biological risks, remediation strategies in contaminated places with emerging and priority pollutants and waste recovery, which are framed within the objectives of the LIFE + projects.
