 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The purpose of BITA is to establish and reinforce scientific collaboration via the stimulation of research and education activities between the members of the academic groups of the network in the field of biological wastewater treatment and of its optimization by means of modeling, monitoring and process control techniques.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

An EU-funded academic network is improving biological wastewater treatment by promoting related research and education activities. Research activities focus on anaerobic digestion (AD) as a key biochemical process for obtaining energy and nutrients from wastewater.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

AD uses bacteria to break down organic matter in the absence of oxygen and converts it into biogases, such as hydrogen and methane. AD is receiving growing interest as a core process for next-generation wastewater treatment systems. This form of treatment can be applied to industrial, agricultural and municipal wastewater, offering opportunities for nutrient and energy recovery.

The 'Bioprocess and control engineering for wastewater treatment' (BITA) project will investigate the use of modelling, monitoring and process control techniques in biological wastewater treatment. Project partners will also study microbial population dynamics and the recovery of energy from liquid and solid waste using different types of bioreactors.

BITA will facilitate the exchange of information through reciprocal visits by research staff. It will also enhance the professional development of MSc and PhD students through increased interaction with researchers in other groups working on similar topics. In addition, BITA will enable specific experimental modelling, monitoring and control tools held by one team of researchers to become available to other teams.

The project will therefore play a significant role in improving wastewater treatment, while achieving a sustainable source of bioenergy in the form of biogas.
