Project

N2O dynamics in full scale DEMON systems

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Background

DEMON process has been recently implemented at Danish WWTPs as an energy effective option for nitrogen removal. However, operational conditions favor N2O emissions, which may compromise the sustainability of this emerging technology.

Aim

1) To perform a sampling campaign in 1 or 2 full scale DEMON systems in Denmark for 1-2 months following monitoring protocols developed by Metlab research group

2) Analyze the gathered data to identify the origin of N2O emission and propose N2O mitigation strategies

What you will learn

Process monitoring, data handling and interpretation, microbial analysis tools (FISH, qPCR), modeling.
