Interests: Very interested to find a host laboratory for doing some joint research as a post-doc or a visiting scientist. Area of expertise and interest: ecotoxicology, aquatic toxicology, microbial biodegradation of contaminants. Unique experience and innovations: developed more efficient and economical methods while studying effects of surfactants and detergents on bacteria, cyanobacteria, diatoms, green algae, flagellates, elongation of seedlings of higher plants, growth aquatic macrophytes Pistia stratiotes, behavior of leeches, filtration rate by bivalves. Authored over 40 publications in professional journals and 3 books on effects of chemicals on organisms and ecosystems (published by Springer Verlag and other good publishing houses). Had experience of teaching in a U.S. university.

We are living in South Portugal and our working area cover mainly South
We are a multidisciplinary consulting company with two main activities :
1- We are the coordinator of " bamboo for europe ", an important CEE funded project with the aim to produce new fibers for the panel industry as alternative for the Pinus tree. Our project is composed by 9 partners of 5 european countries and run untill end 1999.
2- We commercialise constructed wetlands for the treatment of wastewaters
and dewatering of sludge. The wastewaters treatment units are limited to
small capacities ( from 5 to 3000 HE). For sludge dewatering we are
going to 90 000 HE. The
commun plants utilised for both treatments are Phragmites australis.
We are setting up a new EEC funded project linking our two main activities and are interested to exchange informations with any people or company envolved in similar interest. It concern the take up of heavy metals fom sludge by phytoremediation and utilization of this biomass as raw material for the panel industry. Among the plants we will try are populus, willows and bamboo. The heavy metals are Cu, Cr and hydrocarbures.
Many thanks and best regards
