EBNet is involved in responding to consultations and surveys within our remit. If members wish to get involved, add information or comments to our responses before they go out just email us. We also encourage all our members to get directly involved by sharing their own responses as individuals with relevant expertise and experience to offer! You can see our evolving draft responses below in advance of submission.
UKRI/Engineering Biology Consultation – DRAFT
CIWEM/A Fresh Water Future – FINAL RESPONSE
Our YouTube channel, which contains our webinar recordings and more, can be found here.
The topic of in-situ biomethanisation (where electrolytic hydrogen is injected into an AD plant) straddles both the EBNet remit – engineered microbial systems – and the Carbon Recycling Network – high methane content biogas. This video, recorded at AD & Biogas 2020 and courtesy of the AD Bioresources Association, shows Emeritus Professor Sonia Heaven presenting research carried out on the technology. Here, she also outlines the challenges and opportunities in Environmental Biotechnology that the Network is working to support.
Please find the link for our ECR video training course here. Parts of it are also great for anyone doing online meetings. Please do get in touch if you would like any additions or if we can add any further helpful subjects.

Some of our outreach activity has gone on-line as part of a University-wide project which provides easily accessible activities for schools. Click here for more information and to access the resources.
For further ideas about outreach, particularly school resources, why not take a look at the International Microbiology Literacy Initiative.
For more videos explaining various aspects of microbiology, why not take a look at the Microbiology Society for “What is Bioremediation”, “Why microbiology matters”, “Why is soil microbiology important”…
A wealth of information can also be obtained from the Resources section of the AD Network website .
