The Center for Biofilm Engineering (CBE) at Montana State University has a long, successful history of investigating biofilm and mineral precipitation processes in subsurface environments. This poster summarizes many of the experimental approaches the CBE has taken to develop field-suitable technologies. There are numerous applications for engineered biomineralization. The CBE has largely focused on the sealing of leakage pathways, water remediation, soil stabilization, dust suppression and enhanced resource recovery. The experimental systems to examine these engineering applications have been designed to interrogate biofilm and mineral precipitation processes in a variety of environments, conditions, geometries and chemistries. This poster will highlight experimental systems from low pressure to high pressure, bench scale to field scale and low temperature to high temperature.
