Third Publication

TreatRec's third publication "Incorporating model uncertainty into the evaluation of interventions to reduce microcontaminant loads in rivers" is now available online.

The paper is contributed by the ESR5 Pau Gimeno and TreatRec's supervisors Dr. Joaquim Comas, Dr. Jesús Colprim, Dr. Lluís Corominas and more.

TreatRec's second publication Phosphorus recovery through biologically induced precipitation by partial nitritation-anammox granular biomass is now available online.

The paper is contributed by the ESR3 Sara Johansson and her supervisors Maël Ruscalleda and Jesús Colprim.

TreatRec fellow Pau Gimeno presented a poster titled "Influence of uncertainty on decision-making for reduction of pharmaceuticals in rivers" at the SETAC Europe 27th Annual Meeting on May 7-11 2017 in Brussels, Belgium. Pau is currently working at the Aquafin in Antwerp on his secondments.

On May 23 2017 Luca Sbardella, one of the Early Stage Researchers of the TreatRec gave a presentation titled "Removal of Pharmaceuticals from WWTP Secondary Effluent with Biofilters" at the Frontiers International Conference on Wastewater Treatment in Palermo, Italy. Another TreatRec fellow Sara Johansson also presented a poster "Combining arammox with struvite precipitation for multi-nutrient recovery". From the TreatRec project A. Fenu, J. Comas and I. Rodriguez-Roda attended the conference and gave presentations.

First Publication

TreatRec's first publication on resilience theory applied to wastewater treatment Resilience theory incorporated into urban wastewater systems management. State of the art is now available online.

This year’s general assembly of the Marie Curie Alumni Association (MCAA) in Salamanca once again brought together bright minds of the researcher community. Yaroslav Verkh, one of the five Treatrec fellows participated the event with the TreatRec project poster.

The fourth Advanced Training Course within the TreatRec project took place again in Girona, Spain. During the 15th and 16th of March, the fellows and PhD students from the University of Girona enjoyed an intensive course on modelling assessment and decision support tools oriented to water and wastewater systems.

The third Advanced Training Course organized for the TreatRec project was held in Girona Spain on days between the 29th of November and the 1st of December 2016. This time around the topics concentrated on micro-contaminants, covering their detection, effect and fate in wastewater treatment.

On July 20th 2016 Sara Johansson, one of the Early Stage Researchers of the TreatRec gave a seminar titled "P-recovery through the crystallization route" at the University of Girona in Spain. Sara will transfer to Aquafin in Belgium next month for one year and a half and she will continue her research there.
