Pollutant Biodegradation on Mineral Surfaces

This programme aims to create a step change in understanding the molecular basis for microbial interaction with the natural environment, through world-class multidisciplinary scientific research, strong international collaboration and close consultation with industry.

This £1.4M programme is primarily funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), with additional support from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and The University of Sheffield. The programme includes five engineering and science departments at the University, and anchors the Sheffield Cell-Mineral Research Centre. It also contributes significantly to the Technology Strategy Board Environmental Knowledge Transfer Network.
