Seit 1871 gewährleistet die BAM Sicherheit in Technik und Chemie und schafft so Vertrauen in Innovationen und Zukunftstechnologien. Mit unserer Arbeit tragen wir dazu bei, den Wirtschaftsstandort Deutschland zu stärken und auf gesellschaftliche Herausforderungen wie die Energiewende oder den Klimawandel zu antworten.

Im Rahmen der Vortragsreihe „Wissenschaft mit Wirkung“ hat die BAM führende Köpfe aus der Wissenschaft eingeladen, um die Entwicklungen der BAM in den Themenfeldern und die Wirkung von Wissenschaft für die Gesellschaft gemeinsam zu beleuchten. Sie sind herzlich zur Teilnahme an den virtuellen Vorträgen eingeladen.

TopicMicrobes in man-made systems
PresenterProf. Lisa Gieg

Professor (Associate), Department of Biological Sciences at University of Calgary, Canada
SummaryAs in the natural world, microorganisms inhabit almost all man-made systems. Man-made systems, also called the ‘built environment’, include much of the important infrastructure needed for humans to live comfortably: water treatment and delivery systems, wastewater treatment systems, as well as energy production, processing and transport systems. Microorganisms that are integral to these types of man-made systems often play beneficial roles, wherein their metabolisms are crucial for achieving a positive outcome (such as effective wastewater treatment). In contrast, microorganisms and their metabolisms can also play detrimental roles that threaten critical infrastructure which in turn can threaten the natural environment (such as petroleum pipeline failures). This presentation will highlight examples of beneficial and detrimental metabolic processes carried out by microorganisms that inhabit and influence the built environment. Better characterizing and understanding the microorganisms that thrive in man-made systems can help to improve beneficial processes, minimize harmful processes, and to better assess these systems for their impact on the natural world.

This lecture ist part of the LECTURE SERIES Microbes and Environmental Chemistry 14.10. - 18.11.2021. Join us for a virtual trip around the world: on six Thursdays from 14 October to 18 November, always from 4 to 6pm. Six renowned international scientists will share their ground-breaking observations of processes on this planet. The spotlight is on interactions of living organisms and landscapes /materials as mediators of global change in all regions of the Earth.
