Bioremediation and environmental diagnosis

We also study the metal specificity of siderophore-mediated iron uptake pathways for other toxic heavy metals.

We aim at validating the use of bacterial iron uptake pathways for the development of new bioremediation processes for liquid waste contaminated by heavy metals. The use of bacteria in a planktonic or biofilm culture should make it possible to concentrate the pollutant in the biomass.

In parallel, metallophores will be synthesized chemically for the chelation of heavy metals. These new metallophores will be used in environmental diagnosis, for the colorimetric/fluorimetric detection or titration of metals or for the precipitation of heavy metals to facilitate the recovery and elimination of heavy metals.
