Period

I semestre dal Oct 1, 2020 al Jan 29, 2021.

Learning outcomes

The course aims to provife the theoretical knowledge and the up to date view of the technological applications regarding microbial transformation processes in industrial and environmental fields, focused on the obtainment of high-value products and processes based on either the use of renewable substrates and eco-friendly approaches or bioremediation protocols of polluted matrices. In particular, attention will be given to metabolic and molecular aspects related to the exploitation of microorganisms for i) the biotransformation of main polymeric components of plant biomasses: ii) the industrial production of primary and secondary metabolites; iii) the obtainment of bio-catalysts of microbial origin for chemo-enzymatic transformations; iv) biodegradation and biotransformation of either inorganic or organic polluted substances; v) the microbial biosynthesis of nanostructured materials of metals and metalloids of nano-biotechnological interest; vi) production of energy, hydrogen and other products by means of the Bioelectrochemical Systems (BES) such as the Microbial Fuel cells (MFCs) or the Microbial Electrolysis Cells (MECs).
