The first workshop (May 10, 2021) with the theme “Joint Kick-off Meeting of three PEER Cycle 9 Projects in Vietnam” discussed the projects:

  • Project 1 “Nano-assisted bioremediation of diffused dioxins in soil and sediment” - AIT/AITVN (Nguyen Kim Oanh)
  • Project 2 “Biochar facilitated bioremediation: a green solution for dioxin/furan pollution” - HCMUT (Dang Thuong Huyen)
  • Project 3 “Developing a framework for the identification of soil limiting factors for bioremediation of dioxin compounds in contaminated soils of Vietnam” – Can Tho University (Nguyen Khoi Nghia)

The seminar took place on the morning of May 11, 2021 with the following topics:

  • Presentation on methodology and plan for year 1 from VLU: seeding and enrichment of microbes and experiment set-up
  • Presentation on methodology and plan for year 1 from HCMUT: Nano-particle coating and experiment set up
  •  Presentation on methodology and plan for year 1 from AITVN: overall project management, supports for VLU and HCMUT in the experiment set-up and monitoring
