Dynamite Bioremediation

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

- Nitroglycerin (glycerol trinitrate [GTN]) is manufactured for use as an explosive (dynamite) and a pharmaceutical vasodilator.

- GTN is typically found in the waste streams and soils of manufacturing facilities and pharmaceutical plants. Due to the toxicity and explosive nature of GTN, safe and cost-effective methods for treating it are needed.

- Physicochemical methods of GTN destruction have high operational costs and the need for secondary treatment to remove nitrogenous products.

- Bacteria with capacity to degrade GTN have been reported but little is know about the kinetics and mechanisms of GTN degradation.

- In this project, we will investigate the capability and kinetics of 9 bacterial strains to degrade GTN. The positive bacteria strains will be subject to genome sequencing.
