Municipal Wastewater Treatment using Algae and Bacteria at MBR process(based on MLE process

  • 24 June, 2013
  • IHE Delft, Water Supply, Sanitation and Environmental Engineering
  • Prof.dr. D. Brdjanovic
  • Dr.H.A. Garcia Hernandez

The main objective of this research is to assess the effects of the new aeration technologies (SDOX system and Speece cone) on the performance of biological wastewater treatment processes for COD, nitrogen, and phosphorous removal. Simultaneously, the oxygen transfer efficiency of the new aeration technologies will be evaluated and compared to conventional aeration systems (bubble diffusers). This study will also provide a better understanding of both the effects of the new aeration technologies on the microbial communities, as well as the potential impact of these technologies on solid/liquid separation processes. This study is expected to contribute to provide the guidelines for designing the next generation of MBRs.

Capturing hydrological variability. Spatio-temporal aspects of the Rhine basin

  • 20 October, 2021
  • 16:00
  • Wageningen University, Hydrology and Quantitative Water Management
  • dr AJ Teuling
  • dr LA Melsen

This thesis describes how variability in different components of the hydrological cycle (precipitation, runoff generating processes, and evaporation) influences the hydrological response in the Rhine basin. The chapters cover three important steps in hydrological research: understanding past events through analysis of observations, conceptualising hydrology through testing and developing models, and understanding the hydrological response under changing conditions. It is shown that the complex interactions between different components of the hydrological cycle, as well as the contrasting responses to changing climate conditions need to be represented correctly to provide reliable discharge estimates. This thesis gives insight on how to capture the hydrological variability to improve how hydrology can support a safer environment.

Urban Water Reuse in the Bengal Delta: Prospects, Challenges and Socio-Technological Solutions

  • 3 November, 2021
  • 13:30
  • Wageningen University, Environmental Technology
  • prof. dr HHM Rijnaarts
  • dr ir K Kujawa-Roeleveldprof. dr D Kumar Datta

Due to climate change and water pollution, farmers of coastal regions in Bangladesh struggle to find irrigation water in sufficient quantity and quality to sustain regional food production. Urban water has shown to be available in sufficient amounts to provide this irrigation water, but proper treatment and management are required to make this a safe and feasible alternative.

Smart Grids the Human Scale: Investigating householder participation in the decentralization, digitalization and decarbonization of energy grids in the Netherlands

  • 2 December, 2021
  • 11:00
  • Wageningen University, Environmental Policy
  • prof. dr ir G Spaargaren
  • dr ir BJM van Vliet

Smart grids are heralded as promising socio-technical innovation for making the energy grid more flexible and green. The involvement of householders as co-managers energy is seen as crucial to the success of smart grids, however there are uncertainties with respect to changes to everyday domestic practices as well as power and trust relations between stakeholders. Qualitative research conducted primarily in the context of smart grid pilot projects in the Netherlands generates insights into home energy management, novel collectives such as energy platforms, and householder engagement and empowerment. Smart grids are found to be both enabling and constraining of householder agency in new and specific ways. Moreover, smart grid innovations enable the emergence of novel energy collectives which entail diverse and not yet crystallized roles and engagements for householders or communities. The thesis outlines recommendations for human scale smart grid development involving co-creation with householders and mediation between stakeholders.
