AWMC Seminar Program: Translation of Scientific Discoveries to Applied Wastewater Technologies by Collaborative Research

by Dr Shihu Hu

Abstract: In order to enable maximum bioenergy and resources recovery from domestic wastewater, Queensland Urban Utilities (QUU) and The University of Queensland (UQ) have been working closely together and with other partners to develop and demonstrate innovative technologies. Two projects are presented here as examples to show the translation of research outcomes to applied wastewater treatment process based on the recent scientific discoveries: anammox and purple phototrophic bacteria. The pilot-scale evaluations of these technologies at QUU’s sewage treatment plant (STP) show water utilities can potentially gain significant benefits by adopting it in full scale.
