Wastewater treatment is expensive, troublesome, and toxic. The status quo to remediate wastewater typically includes fiscally inexpensive treatment methods that have high environmental costs due to the use of harsh chemicals, which leach into the groundwater and surface streams. However, greener methods are fiscally expensive to set up and operate and require five to ten times the energy and labor compared to standard treatments. we are proposing the use of engineered microorganisms to remediate toxic contaminants from water. We have genetically engineered yeast to capture heavy metals, including lead, arsenic, and mercury, from various water sources.
