Micro-organisms in Action for the Planet, Pint of Science Festival, Spain

When: Tuesday 15th May 2018, 7pm,

Where: La fuga Pub-Cervecería Calle Cardenal Herrera Oria, 1, Almería 04005

Agrimax researcher, María José López from the University of Almería will deliver a short talk on the Agrimax project as part of the Pint of Science Festival.

Micro-organisms are found in all parts of the Earth and we can use them to decontaminate and transform waste into valuable compounds such as fertilizers, energy, biofuels and much more. In this talk, Maria will discuss the diverse applications of the micro-organisms through two European projects: Biodecontamination of alpechín ponds (LIFE + REGROW) and biorefinery in the agri-food industry (H2020- AGRIMAX). 

Pint of Science is an annual science festival that takes place every May and brings researchers to your local pub to present their scientific discoveries (14-16 May 2018).
