Bioremediation For Turning Waste Into Money

Larry Wackett


This project is a collaboration with Bio-Teche to develop methods for bioremediating waste grease in a manner that transforms the carbon into very high-value products. This research will promote a circular economy whereby industry is incentivized to recycle waste because it enhances, rather than drains, company profits. It is a corollary of this proposal that biological waste-to-profits conversion will help usher in a larger role for bioremediation in society.
