inCTRL and Universidade Nova de Lisboa co-chair workshop at NRR in Denver
Dr. Adrian Oehmen (Universidade Nova de Lisboa) and Dr. Leiv Rieger (inCTRL Solutions) co-chair a workshop at the WEF/IWA Nutrient Removal & Recovery conference in Denver July 10-13, on
“NRR: Art, Practice, and Gaps from Biotechnology to Engineering“.
New techniques and related findings in microbial ecology have increased our understanding of nutrient removal and recovery processes tremendously. On the other side engineering practice is challenged by several new processes and the need for an in-depth understanding of these processes translated into engineering tools. The state-of-the-art and practice on microbial ecology, modeling, and engineering applications of NRR will be discussed by the A-Team of researchers and practitioners. Data and modeling gaps will be highlighted, identifying the roadmap for R&D and practice in the upcoming future.
The workshop is structured into 4 sessions:
- Session 1: State-of-the-art in Microbial Ecology – What Can We Bring to the Table chaired by Adrian Oehmen and Kartik Chandran
- Session 2: Engineering Perspectives – Shortcomings and Needs in Biokinetik Models chaired by Jose Jimenez and John Copp
- Session 3: Additional Modeling Needs – Physical and Equipment Models chaired by Diego Rosso and Leiv Rieger
- Session 4: Synergies and Gaps – Identifying a Roadmap for Research and Development Needs chaired by all Session Leaders
