This week’s presenters are Zhiyao Wang and Angelica Guerrero Calderon and you can find the details of their presentations below. We look forward to seeing you on Friday morning.


One step closer to the implementation of free nitrous acid technology in anaerobic digestion – Angelica Guerrero Calderon


Free Nitrous Acid (FNA) technology is recognized to offer a sustainable approach to enhancing Wastewater Treatment and Anaerobic Digestion (AD) processes.  

The conducted studies have demonstrated its capability to improve the AD process through the FNA pre-treatment of Waste Activated Sludge (WAS). However, to facilitate the design for its full-scale implementation, a holistic FNA study was still required.    


My PhD journey of fighting against nitrite-oxidizing bacteria – Zhiyao Wang


In this seminar, I will zoom in on Zhiguo’s overall picture of the FNA research, mainly focusing on the transition between stage 2 to stage 3 over the past 5 years. As a fresh graduate, I will also share with you the entire journey of my PhD, ups and downs, joy and sorrow, particularly the experience of how to go through struggling period during PhD.
