Dr. Carsten Vogt
My research area is to characterise and quantify microbial degradation processes in contaminated aquifers, ranging from enrichment and isolation of pollutant degrading bacteria to experiments with in situ reactive treatment walls. My special interest belongs to bacteria which need only little amounts or even no oxygen to break down pollutants. I am involved in groundwater remediation projects at the UFZ field sites Bitterfeld, Zeitz and Leuna. Within these projects, the characterization of BTEX degradation under anaerobic conditions using methods based on stable isotopes is currently a strong focus of my work.
