The Environmental Microbiology & Biotechnology Conference will take place on the 10th - 12th May 2012 in Bologna, Italy. The EMB conference is addressed to explore the major advances, frontiers and applications of Environmental Microbiology and Biotechnology in the modern area of the knowledge-based bio and green economy. In particular, the conference will focus on the sustainable decontamination of polluted habitats, water resource purification and reuse, biofixation of climate change-inducing gases and the production of biobased chemicals, materials and fuels from biowaste or/and via the exploitation and management of novel microbes from non conventional or impacted habitats. These are aspects of modern Environmental Microbiology and Biotechnology which should enable this forum to address several of the major “Europe 2020” priorities and to contribute to build up a more sustainable and competitive knowledge-based economy in Europe and in the Partner Countries.
