Biodegradation Laboratory

The Biodegradation Laboratory, in Farber Hall on UB's south campus, conducts both laboratory and field studies and has a full range of capabilities for studying the mechanisms of degradation of polyolefins, halogenated organics and PAHs. An OWS in-lab composting facility is available, capable of running 32 reactors simultaneously, with synchronous sampling of volatile organics and on-line GC measurement.
