Bioremediation is a key area of environmental biotechnology, because the elimination of a wide range of pollutants from water and soils is an absolute requirement for sustainable development. The biodegradation / bioremediation program of environmental contaminants aims at utilizing biodegradative potential of microorganisms for bioremediation of various pollutants (including oil and pesticides) contaminated lands and/or water. Using this technology, it will be possible to get rid of contaminants and hence improve soil quality without any environmental risks. The process will also prove to be beneficial to farmers interested in organic farming as it will make it possible to get rid of the environmental pollutants like pesticide and oil  and their residues in their lands and hence their products.

This group focuses on processes development for efficient biodegradation and bioremediation of environmental pollutants. Some salient activities are:

  • Biodegradation and bioremediation of pesticides and related contaminants 
  • Biodegradation and bioremediation of petroleum and related contaminants
  • Biodegradation of edible oil contaminants
