Feasibility studies in soils, waters and sludges

In order to evaluate if it is feasible to apply microbiological techniques as a tool for the recovery of a contaminated matrix it is necessary to previously carry out feasibility tests to rule out possible inhibitions on the microbiology involved in the process.

Furthermore, biogas potential tests are carried out on sludge to evaluate its performance as a possible substrate in an anaerobic digestion process.

Isolation and development of specific microbiological consortiums applied in decontamination projects

KEPLER has a collection of microbiological consortiums adapted to different pollutants in order to reduce the time of treatment in bioremediation projects. Likewise, the laboratory carries out the isolation of bacterial strains and incubation of their inocula to be subsequently applied in contaminated sites.
