Superior mainstream partial nitritation in an acidic membrane-aerated biofilm reactor

24 May 2024 9:30am
Mainstream wastewater accounts for an estimated 80% of the nitrogen load in municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). The ongoing urbanization has significantly increased the burden on these WWTPs, necessitating the development of innovative solutions to intensify wastewater treatment processes.

Destruction of PFASs by UV/Sulfite/Iodide Advanced Reduction Process

17 May 2024 9:00am
PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) encompass a large and diverse group of chemicals known for their robustness and persistence, leading to significant environmental persistence and bioaccumulation concerns.

Energy-efficient resource recovery from wastewaters

10 May 2024 9:30am
Since the turn of this century, wastewaters are no longer merely viewed as the source of environmental pollution but rather as source of various valuable resources, such as purified water, nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus), precious metal (lithium, palladium, etc.), and renewable energy.

Developments in emissions reduction from livestock production wastewater (effluent)

12 April 2024 9:30am
This talk will provide an overview of approaches to reduce manure management methane, including biogas for energy recovery, emissions avoidance by manure separation, and developments of low-cost manure additives, and short hydraulic retention time systems.

The Impact of Biosolids Char in Anaerobic Digestion

15 March 2024 1:00pm
In the quest for sustainable waste management solutions, anaerobic digestion (AD) has been identified as a critical method for managing waste activated sludge (WAS). Despite its potential, AD is challenged by issues related to efficiency and stability.

Understanding roles of non-antibiotics on the emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance

8 March 2024 1:00pm
Antimicrobial resistance is claiming at least 1.27 million lives every year. Current research on antimicrobial resistance heavily focuses on the clinical setting and mainly attributes the spread of antimicrobial resistance to the misuse and overuse of antibiotics.
