Background

Nitrous oxide (N2O), a potent greenhouse gas, is produced during nitrogen cycling in wastewater treatment facilitates. Emissions of N2O have a strong impact on the total carbon footprint of the wastewater treatment plant and it is therefore important to understand the underlying production and reduction pathways. Mathematical modelling is a useful tool to gain deeper understanding of these processes as well as to explore mitigation strategies.

Aim

To make an analysis of data quality and quantity of existing data sets from previous sampling campaigns, based on which new short term sampling campaigns can be designed and performed. 

To calibrate a plant wide model for different Scandinavian WWTPs able to predict and match effluent quality and N2O emissions that were measured during the sampling campaign.

To develop simple control rules and give recommendations to reduce the carbon footprint of WWTPs

Approach

The student will critically analyze existing data sets from a municipal WWTP from Sweden or Denmark and perform short term sampling campaigns to ensure data quality can support process model calibration and validation (in close collaboration with Kruger or municipalities). The student will develop a WWTP model based on existing plant-wide models (i.e., complete treatment plant models). The model will be calibrated to predict full scale data using a standard calibration protocol. Once the model is calibrated, scenario simulations will be used to identify the origin of N2O emissions and define optimal operation windows for maximum nitrogen removal at low emission rates. Finally, the student will design simple control rules to be tested under realistic conditions. The work will be carried out in Matlab-Simulink or WEST.
