BioSym Thème : dépollution des environnements contaminés
U

RESEARCH TOPICS

Biological treatment of industrial and domestic wastewaters.
  • Membrane bioreactors : hydrodynamics modelling, aeration control, simulation, large scale experiments, pharmaceutical micropollutants removal
  • Moving Bed Biofilm reactor for Micropollutants removal, biotic and abiotic removal, microbial ecology.
  • Innovative coupling for industrial waste water treatment, MBR, O3, NF, biofilm…
  • On site wastewater treatment, study of new filtration media
Performed research aim at a comprehensive description of microorganism’s behavior in the environment fixed by the process and its constraints: Diffusional (development of flocs, biofilms, biological interface), mechanical/hydrodynamic (aeration, agitation), biochemical interactions (excreted metabolites) or chemical interactions (metals, coloration, pharmaceutical micropollutants), in the respect of environmental and energetic criteria.
