The Marie Curie Alumni Association (MCAA) gathers researchers that are or have been benefitting from the European Commission’s Marie Curie mobility programme. This year, the annual meeting for the MCAA was held in Leuven, Belgium and TreatRec fellows Sara Johansson and Yaroslav Verkh attended the event.
This time around, the advanced training course of the Treatrec project was held in the United Kingdom between 27th and 30th November. The first day included site visits to installations of Severn-Trent Waters, a utility company with over 1.5 million users in the UK. The Packington wastewater treatment facility introduced the guests to the novel technologies for the recovery of nutrients from wastewater. A subsequent visit to the Nottingham wastewater treatment plant, which treats wastewater corresponding to 650 000 people equivalents, presented the implementation of such technologies on large scale.
TreatRec fellow Pau Juan together with Ben Axelsen from Atkins, one of the TreatRec beneficiaries presented a poster titled Increasing resilence by engaging infrastructure interdependencies in urban water systems at the International Symposia for Next Generation Infrastructure 2017 in London on September 11-13 2017.
Pau is currently working at the Atkins on his secondments.
