References Kemira Enabled oil well biocide developmentCustomer: Kemira Oyj

 CHALLENGE

Develop control strategies against unwanted microbial biofilms in oil-field applications.

 SOLUTION

VTT provided biofilm model systems for true anaerobic microbes and developed novel molecular tools for microbial community profiling.

 BENEFIT

Molecular profiling identified uncultured microbes, enabling the development of biocides against relevant microbes in oil wells.
