This project is related to the FAPESP process nº 2013/11020-2 and proposes the development of fixed-bed reactor technique using microbial consortium isolated from contaminated sites. The step proposed involves a stage of a PhD student with the research team at the University of Houston, USA, coordinated by Profa. Dra. Débora Rodrigues Frigi. This knowledge will be applied to the PhD student's project and will represent a significant increase in knowledge both for the student and for the Brazilian research team. (AU)
