Developed Tools

Design and operation simulators

This line of research enables the development of tools to optimise dimensioning and operations of WWTPs that include continuous and non-continuous active sludge systems, for the biodegradation of organic matter, nitrogen and phosphorus.

In this area, research activities have focused on developing of simulators for WWTPs design, with elimination of organic matter and nutrients.

Process controls

This line has meant an advance in the control of biological processes that enable the operations of installations to be optimised from a technical and economic perspective. In this area, research activities have focused on developing control strategies for advanced control in waste water treatment processes; bioreactors, active sludges.
