In May and June 2011 the director of the Regional Inspector for the Environment and Water of Varna, Bulgaria came to Germany through the EnviMV e.V. program. She spent time looking at municipal environmental protection, concepts of waste management, and how agency work with environmental protection.
In conjunction with research sponsored by the Ministry for the Economy of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, a biotest (NORDUM-Biotest H) was developed at the NORDUM Institute from 1998 – 2000.
The principle of this biotest and its advantages
An organism that is tested displays adverse effects caused by toxins in the environment. The NORDUM-Biotest H shows the measured in water samples: toxins lower the ability, fermentation of yeast cells nutrients (unknown waste water) increase it. Yeast cells are safe and easy to handle, yet observing the effects on them is representative for the water itself.
The NORDUM Akademie also takes part in training programmes of the NORDUM Institute. In addition to working with students from the University of Rostock (especially the departments of land improvement and environmental protection) and the College of Stralsund (economics), we also work with foreign students, engineers and academics who are interested in training programmes in the field of environmental management and environmental analysis.
