Mini bioreactors in the lab at the Yukon College’s Yukon Research Centre allow Amelie Janin to study specialized bacteria, which could be utilized at northern mine sites for their ability to strip toxic heavy metals from contaminated water. (Photo: Yukon College)
AEG has made it a priority to support Yukon based bioremediation studies. Bioremediation has been extensively demonstrated to work efficiently, but rarely in northern climates. AEG has partnered with Yukon College, both to support local students and to increase confidence in the use of bioremediation in the extreme climates of the North.
