Jörgen Forss has his expertise in biotechnical applications where different microorganisms are used to design wastewater solutions for industrial effluents. He has designed sustainable and cost efficient biofilters to treat wastewater from textile industries in development countries. He has worked both with white rot fungi and bacteria applications where microorganisms were employed in different designs and molecular fingerprinting was used to follow the microbial community composition and metabolites was analyzed with liquid chromatography coupled with mass spectroscopy (LC/MS). He has a strong belief that natural microorganisms possess all the necessary characteristics needed to degrade most compounds and circulate nutrients, if we can design the right environment for them.
