We conduct applied biological and chemical research of environmental processes for the benefit of society and our customers.

Our key competence and research areas:

Environmental fate and effects

    Experimental biology and ecotoxicology
  • Linking fate and ecotoxicology with environmental models
  • Freshwater and marine ecotoxicity and biodegradation testing according to international guidelines and regulations (e.g. REACH, OSPARCOM)
  • Microbial conversion of oil and other pollutants
  • Sediment adsorption, photooxidation and hydrolysis studies of organic pollutants in freshwater and marine environments
  • Environmental behavior of nanomaterials (dispersability, aggregation/agglomeration, sedimentation, interaction with other pollutants)
  • Environmental studies and risk assessment of chemicals and degradation products from CO2 capture technologies


  • Medical microbiology – infection prevention with focus on Pseudomonas and Legionella
  • General microbiology and biofilms
    • Characterization of microorganisms associated with oil exploration and production
    • Microbial induced corrosion (MIC)
  • Clean water
    • Specific determination of microbial flora in fresh water/drinking water offshore and in aquaculture

Analytical chemstry

  • Advance environmental sample extraction and preparation techniques (SPME, nd-SPME)
  • Expertise in a wide range of analytical techniques (LC/GC-MS, NMR, FT-IR and particle measurements) for the quantification of environmental pollutants
  • Metabolomics using LC-MS-ToF and NMR
    • Multivariate statistics applied for data treatment
