A team of biologists, chemists and engineers from the University of Glasgow has received a major grant to study how cutting-edge technology could help avert a future crisis in water supply and treatment. The University will lead one of five projects to address some of the world's major engineering challenges. The Frontier Engineering projects will share Euro 25mn from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and other partners. The University of Glasgow team will work to develop synthetic biology solutions to growing problems with the world's water supply. The University of Glasgow team will work to develop synthetic biology solutions to growing problems with the world's water supply.The developed world's water infrastructure, developed with tremendous vision and effort by the engineers of the industrial revolution, is now unsustainable: aged, faulty, expensive to maintain, costly to run, and energy-inefficient.
