The main directions of researches

The development of biocatalytic systems and processes based on them to solve different biotechnology tasks in ecology field.
- Biodegradation of industrial and agricultural wastes to produce products having commercial potential;
- Processes of detoxification of toxic compounds and their products of biodegradation;
- Bioindication of toxic compounds in environment objects.

Cells of microorganisms and enzymes are among biocatalysts being developed

Immobilization of elements making up the biocatalytic systems is a special feature of all developed products.

Ongoing researches

Biodegradation of industrial and agricultural wastes to produce products having commercial potential:
- Processes of convertion of renewable raw materials (cellulose biomass, waste biofuels, phototrophic microbial biomass) to energy sources (financial support of 2 projects in 2012-2013 years);
Development of new enzymatic biocalalysts based on organophosphorus hydrolase:
- for detoxification of organophosphorus compounds in vivo (financial support of 1 project in 2012 - 2013 years);
- for suppression of reproduction of resistent bacterial strains (financial support of 1 project in 2012 - 2013 years).
Bioindication of cyto- and ecotoxicity of different compounds:
- express-measurement of ecotoxicity of substrates, products of different reactions, new biocatalysts;
- detection of compounds possessing biocidic activity.
