Microbes for urban mining

We are inspired by the richness and diversity of nature. That is why we start by looking for microorganisms that naturally do what they are supposed to do later in an industrial process.


For example, evolution has produced microorganisms that can dissolve metals from rocks. We have cultivated and adapted them in the laboratory so that they can now isolate valuable metals from old smartphones, for example.
