Biotechnology for Industry, Environment, and Energy Program (BIEEP)

The BIEEP aims to address environmental problems and mitigate effects of climate change by developing technologies and sustainable strategies. Its efforts include production of bioethanol and biodiesel from renewable resources; use of microorganisms for the degradation of plastics; plastic-related compounds and plastic containing packaging materials; microbial degradation of oily/lipid-containing agro-industrial wastes; production of biomass and biomolecules (biosurfactants, enzymes) from yeasts for industrial and environmental applications; and development of microbial-based technologies for agro-industrial waste management. The program also provides technical assistance to the industry for environmental management.
