chicken feather disposal biotechnology department of Kolhapur's Shivaji University identifying a new microorganism that disintegrates feathers within 30 hours. The scientists named it Chryseobacterium and registered it with the International Database Bank in the U.S. Chicken feathers are a disposal problem in factory farms. The feathers contain keratin that makes them last five to seven years. Feathers cannot be incinerated because burning them releases sulphur.

Alameda (Bay Area, California) clean-up news "Cleanup efforts have shifted from chemical applications to bioremediation, where bacteria naturally break down the chemical contaminants over time." Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Ongoing Research Projects: Meta-omics of Microbial Communities Involved in Bioremediation, by Professor Lisa Alvarez-Cohen. "This research seeks to advance our fundamental understanding of microbial communities that are capable of bioremediating environmental contaminants. We will apply systems biology approaches to study biodegradation abilities and interactions within microbial communities that remediate two water contaminants, trichloroethene (TCE) and 1,4-dioxane (dioxane), both of which are common problems at Superfund sites." Thawing microbes could control the climate: As the Arctic permafrost melts over the coming decades, long-frozen microorganisms will thaw out and start feasting on the soil.

Microbes/disease/antibiotic resistance "One of the many reasons for the lack of progress in dealing with the phenomenon of 'resistance' seems to be the flawed 'war metaphor' which reflects the dominant paradigm shaping our relationship to the microbial world. Experience in tackling infectious diseases is showing that antibiotics are no longer the 'magic bullets' they were once conceived to be while bacteria are also not the 'enemy' to be eliminated through any means whatsoever. We need accurate knowledge of and actions to prevent and treat the relatively few pathogenic threats rather than a general fear of all microbes. Chief among the insights that new research in microbiology is providing is the extent to which human life is closely intertwined with that of the microbial world." See also, Dr. Mary Murray, ReAct Global Network Coordinator, reimagining our relationship with microbes.

RemTEC Summit March 4-6, 2013, Westminster, Colorado—"Delivering The Latest, Cutting-Edge Developments Within The Environmental Science And Remediation Field." Editor's Note: this is a conventional remediation conference, but includes a heading for "Sustainability Considerations and Green Remediation" and other subjects that look organic and natural. "Pollution Engineering is news and information for senior executives and engineers involved in their company's Pollution Control." Editor's Note: connected with the RemTec Summit, again, this link appears to be mostly conventional means but some opening for green technologies like we promote at this blog. Worth checking out.
