End of year 2 update

The Marisurf project is progressing as planned.  Screening was finished in mid 2017 and the consortium has selected 4 of the most promising strains to test further. These strains have desirable characteristics such as the ability to reduce surface tension and to produce foam and or  act as an emulsifier. Our end users – Macphie, […]

1st review period – What has been achieved?

During the first reporting period Sep 15 through to Feb 17) , the MARISURF team has developed an innovative screening programme to identify surfactants from a large bacterial collection (greater than 500 strains) housed at HWU.

The industrial partners have identified the desirable properties for the bio-surfactants […]
