Simultaneous Bioremediation and Soilification of Degraded Areas to Preserve Natural Resources of Biologically Active Substances, and Development and Production of Biomaterials and Dietetic Products

Project Leader: Prof. dr Miroslav M. Vrvić
Research organization: Faculty of Chemistry, University of Belgrade
Field of interest: Environmental protection and climatic changes
Thematic framework: New environmental technologies
Number of sub-projects: 4

By ex/in situ bioremediation through the utilization of the selected active consortia of zymogenous microorganisms (MO), which features will be determined (isolated or microbiomically proven), oil pollutants will be degraded with the simultaneous soilification by humification of the degraded areas resulting from surface exploitation (primarily of coal and its use as a power source-ash dump). Hydrocarbon pollutants in natural or artificial layered soil substrates will be biodegraded, thus conducting a guided harmonization of biogeochemical cycles that are critical for land fertility, with the concurrent immobilization of toxic elements. The overall success of these procedures will depend on the contamination control and modelling, and the protection of ground and surface waters as key pollutant carriers. In that way it will be possible to protect mineral waters and plant life from these pollutants, and to create a possibility to use these resources as sources of bioactive substances and fresh cattle feed. The focus will be on biosurfаctants (their application in bioremediation), enzymes (immobilized as nanobiomaterials) and bioactive compounds of plants with antimicrobial, anticoagulative and antioxidant activities. Formulation, production and clinical studies of the nutritionally new infant (I) formulas (F)-dietetic products in the category of functional foods which use fresh milk as the basic raw material will be focused on formulations having new-their own symbiotics.
