Assessment of the fate of organic micropollutants in novel wastewater treatment plant configurations through an empirical mechanistic model
Novel wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are expected to be less energetically demanding than conventional ones. However, scarce information is available about the fate of organic micropollutants (OMPs) in these novel ...
Designing a robust index for WWTP energy efficiency: the ENERWATER Water Treatment Energy Index
The development and use of composite indexes has exploded in the last 15 years as a tool to summarise the large amount of information available nowadays. To ensure that composite indicators reflect faithfully the purpose ...
Transient and Persistent Energy Efficiency in the Wastewater Sector based on Economic Foundations
(International Association for Energy Economics (IAEE), 2020)
Given the increasing importance of the wastewater sector in terms of energy usage, the understanding of the level of energy efficiency of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) is useful to both the industry itself as well ...
A metabolic model for targeted volatile fatty acids production by cofermentation of carbohydrates and proteins
Anaerobic mixed-culture fermentations are interesting processes to valorise organic wastes by converting them to volatile fatty acids. One of the main issues is that certain operational conditions (e.g. pH or different ...
Model-based design of smart active packaging systems with antimicrobial activity
Smart active packaging is an innovative packaging system that combines the benefits of measuring, estimating or predicting different aspects of food quality or safety with the release of an active substance that extends ...
Towards a digital twin: a hybrid data-driven and mechanistic digital shadow to forecast the evolution of lignocellulosic fermentation
The high substrate variability and complexity of fermentation media derived from lignocellulosic feedstocks affect the concentration profiles and the length of the fermentations. Not accounting for such variability raises ...
