Project Details

Description

Urban, industrial and agricultural pollution of natural water resources and low quality of drinking water are currently major problemes for human and animal health, especially in the countries of CCE/NIS. This multidisciplinary project concerns the application of modern biotechnological and molecular biological approaches, which will help to solve these problems and are based on existing knowledge in the participating countries of EU/CCE/NIS, thereby contributing to stabilization of RTD potential in the respective CCE/NIS. The topics of the proposed research are:

A. Determination of phosphate pollution of wastewaters and the development of methods for phosphate removal with its consequent reuse (enhanced biological phosphorus removal).

B. Determination of genotoxicity of by-products of water oxidation/disinfection and development of methods for its routine assessment.
