KLEB orients its research towards the frontiers of each discipline and the priority needs of the country, places the emphasis on research that will provide methodological platform and biotechnological support for the development of environmental sciences, environmental engineering and ecology,  investigates biological methods and technologies for pollutant reduction, focuses on the combination of theory, technology and application, and generates scientific breakthroughs and results worth application. At present, KLEB has formed three stable research units, which are environmental biological methodologies, biological processes and effects of environmental pollutants, and biological pollutant control technology.


Unit of Environmental Biotechnology methodology

Establish and improve the evaluation of toxic effects of environmental pollutants based on model organisms; develop biological monitoring methods and molecular operating platform based on molecular markers, genetic engineering technology, provide methodological basis for the study and research into the microbial ecology and mechanisms of microbial contaminant transformation; combine the  microbial technology and genetic engineering techniques with bioelectrochemical methods for rapid diagnosis of biological metabolism and interaction principles.


Unit of biological processes and effects of environmental pollution

Study the impact of typical contaminants (biological pollution, non-biological pollution) on the functioning of ecosystems and biological response mechanisms; explore the interference effects of typical pollutants on microbial signal transduction and the related effects; explore the functional role of microorganisms in the cycling of key elements; interpretation of environmental contaminants in vivo transport, metabolism and transformation processes from the microscopic level, and clarify the environmental pollutants biodegradation through multiple methods.


Unit of Environmental biotechnology for pollution control

Focusing on the new principles, new technologies and new methods for directional biotransformation of pollutants coupling resource recycling, with emphasis being placed on the transport of pollutants, directional biotransformation and removal mechanisms, rapid diagnosis and optimal regulation of biological processes, efficiently removal of malodorous substances and volatile organic compounds, standard treatment methods and technical specifications of sewage (waste) water resource recovery technologies, technologies and process equipment for rapid reduction of waste biomass, recycling and conversion of novel bio-energy, and achieve technology transfer and promotion by large-scale engineering applications.
