Microbial interference as biocide in paper production and wastewater treatment

The project aims to optimize the production of a microbial biocide that can inhibit the binding and growth of spore forming microbes that can grow in, for example, wet, recycled fiber. The spore forming microbes can cause flow arrests, bad odors, corrosion of materials, explosive gas formation, as well as reduced productivity and product quality. The microbial biocidal product is expected to prevent the growth of the harmful microbes in a cost-effective manner, with only a small impact on the environment and the working environment.
