Aim and Scope

The programme of events will focus on a wide variety of topics

Topics

  • Anaerobic MBR, research & application
  • Bio-electrochemical systems / Microbial fuel cells
  • Granular sludge bed technologies
  • Novel anaerobic high-rate reactors / advanced sludge retention systems
  • Sludge and slurry digestion (waste activated sludges, energy crops, co-digestion, sludge dewaterability, etc.)
  • Low-tech solutions for developing countries

Topics

  • Modelling, instrumentation and control
  • Pre-treatment technologies (physicochemical / biological)
  • Nutrient removal/recovery linked to AD (Anammox, struvite, N/P in general)
  • Post-treatments anaerobic effluents/digestates
  • Agricultural use of anaerobic effluents
  • Sulfur cycle technology

Topics

  • Biogas upgrading and management
  • Microbiology of anaerobic digestion/ (meta)genomic research
  • Bio-polymer production using anaerobic systems
  • Resource recovery
  • Anaerobic biotransformation of micro-pollutants
  • Environmental management and policy (life cycle assessment, clean development mechanisms)
