I'm preparing myself to talk about intelligent measurement and automation applications in the fields of mining and processing of rawmaterials.


Juha, oletko miten paljon pohtinut mikrobiologian ja bioteknologian mahdollisuuksia kaivannaisteollisuudessa ja ympäristöasioissa?

Hello Aura!

Thank you for your response!

Biodegradation sounds interesting. Genomic tools are something which I have not used personally - but I know the basics of 16SrRNA and PCR methods. Stora Enso (which I worked for 1986-2006) ordered those analyses from Viikki, VTT/Espoo or KCL, and I had chances to visit all those labs.

Effects of biocides on paper industry bacteria is a most important topic for me today. What kind of biocides, what kind of dosing etc. are often asked from me. Biofilms and spore-forming bacteria have been the subjects of my research already over 20 years. I have also worked with coliforms (esp. with Klebsiella pneumoniae) on 1970's-1980's.

Leena Suominen / Viikki (do you know Leena?) helped me to detect plasmids of K.pneumoniae, and I started my Dr.thesis work with it - but had to leave it when I started working for Enso-Gutzeit Oy in Imatra. It is still one of my "favourite" bacteria, no matter its pathogenic features.

Are you a member of Mikrobiologikilta? If so, we maybe meet in Autumn meeting?

Regards & luck for your new job!

Hi Juha,

I graduated from Viikki about a year ago, been working as a research scientist at VTT in a project concerning microbial ecology in the deep biospheres. My contract ends in a month, after which I will start my phD project at SYKE. The project is just starting, it's on biodegradation of herbicides in ground water using genomic tools... should be interesting!

I read your article in Inocula, you're working with paper machine microbes, right? That should be interesting. I will visit your blog later on to look more closely in the subject.

Nice of you to contact me through this site!

Hi Juha!
Your German is pretty good. Gut gesprochen, schön geschrieben. :) Yes, I visited your blog. I guess you are working in the paper industry. Right now, I'm still caught in a lot of offline activities and can't spend as much time in the various communities as I would wish too. However this will change in the coming weeks hopefully and then I'll be able to invest also more time here on kk.
Have a nice weekend. We'll sure meet again :)

Hi Juha,
I just wonder, but assume you did get my comments to you yesterday (I do not see it here...). It sounds nice, if you call me on the 9th of September, which is exact time for a cup of coffee. My number is 040 585 2872

Hello Juha!
I am so sorry that answering to you took so long time... I have had huge problems between my email and kk-net. I have not had any note, when I get comments, and still have. I send a message to our it-support, but have not had any answer yet...
So, a coffee meeting 9th September before 15.10 sounds nice.

BR, Sari

Hello Sari!

My presentation is dated on 9th September, 15.10-16.15. Its title is "Origin and Control of Microbiological Deposits in Paper Machines".

We could plan a coffee meeting before/after it in LUT?


My presentation take place 9.9.2008, and it is called
