Transforming pipedreams into pipe-bots: intelligent self-powered sensors for wastewater systems and river protection

Project details. The 2050 wastewater destination for the UK water industry is an environmentally sustainable service that works as one end-to-end system, from customer drain to the river, collecting and treating wastewater within the system with zero spills to the environment. Read more

Treatment wetlands as a nature-based solution for long term phosphorus removal and carbon sequestration PhD

This fully funded PhD project will enable nature-based solutions for phosphorus removal from wastewater treatment to be implemented at scale, thus protecting receiving water courses, and contributing to climate change adaptation. Read more

The use of exposure models to determine pharmaceutical usage data from measured environmental concentrations

In recent years occurrence of antibiotics in aquatic systems has attracted significant attention, particularly in rivers which receive sewage treatment effluent where they have been found to bioaccumulate in aquatic organisms, albeit in trace amounts. Read more

Wastewater sludge to hydrogen via direct biogenic electrolysis

  Research Group: Architecture, Built Environment and Planning
Wastewater sludge is the by-product of wastewater treatment plants. Currently, 13.5 million tonnes of dry sludge are produced in Europe annually, 1.5 million tonnes in the UK, and further increase has been projected with population growth. Read more

EPSRC DTP PhD project: The prevalence and persistence of antibiotic resistance plasmids in wastewater

The University of Bath is inviting applications for the following PhD project commencing in October 2023. Eligible applicants will be considered for a fully-funded studentship – for more information, see the Funding Notes section below. Read more

SCENARIO: Engineered Anammox Biofilms for Low-Energy Wastewater Remediation and Environmental Protection (SC2023_11)

Nitrogen, in the forms of ammonium and nitrates ions, is a serious problem in the UK and elsewhere in water being discharged into the environment because it can harm aquatic ecology and detrimentally affect human health. Read more

Sustainable means for the removal of emerging pathogens in the tertiary treatment of wastewaters in western and emerging economies

  Research Group: Architecture, Built Environment and Planning
21 September 2016 represented a watershed for humanity when the General Assembly of the United Nations declared that ‘Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has become one of the biggest threats to global health and endangers other major priorities, such as human development’ (Tell et al, 2019). Read more

EASTBIO: Development of tailored microbial consortia for effective wastewater treatment

This fully funded, 4-year PhD project is part of a competition funded by the. BBSRC EASTBIO Doctoral Training Partnership. Waste-water treatment includes a biological stage, involving sequential anaerobic/aerobic microbial treatment with bacterial consortia (such as activated sludges) (1). Read more

Water Management-Desalination and Wastewater Treatment

  Research Group: Water Engineering and Natural Environment
Water management is very important in many countries in the world. Out of many aspects of water management, freshwater production by desalination technologies (thermal and membrane) and wastewater treatment by various technologies are the most important ones. Read more
