Wastewater has to be transported and treated in an efficient, hygienic and environmentally friendly manner. The most common way of treating wastewater, the activated sludge process, was invented more than 100 years ago and is based on biological processes. Modern wastewater treatment plants are still to a large extent based on the same technology but have developed to become more advanced to meet the challenges of today, namely increased urbanization which requires compact treatment processes, stricter effluent discharge limits for nutrients but also for micropollutants, demand for higher energy efficiency and restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions. During the last decades the understanding of the complex microbial processes involved has increased enormously due to the advancement of analytical tools and this has enabled the development of new, more efficient and less energy demanding or even energy generating treatment technologies. In this lecture I will give an overview of the wastewater treatment of today and where our research comes in and where it is heading in the future.     </div> <div><br /></div> <div><div>Zoom-länk:</div> <div><a href="">​</a></div> <div>code 505520</div> </div> <div> </div> webinar: Presentations of 2D-tech PhD Awardees<p>Online</p><p>Samuel Breem, Physics - Exciton Dynamics in 2D MaterialsHans He, Microtechnology and Nanoscience - Molecular Doping of Epitaxial ​ ​​</p>​<span style="background-color:initial">Join from PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android: <a href=""></a></span><div>Password: 326895</div> <div><br /></div> Talks 2021<p>Zoom</p><p>​Shifting Urban Diets The complexity of transitioning the food-health-climate-nexus in Copenhagen</p> Conference on Urban Freight<p>Online</p><p>​The 4th VREF Conference on Urban Freight will present current issues influencing urban freight research and discuss the complexity of designing urban space and managing flows for liveable cities.</p> Health 2021<p></p><p>​Welcome to our Initiative Seminar, April 13-14 2021! ​</p><div>​<img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Areas%20of%20Advance/Health/Toppbilder/Engineering-Health-2021-750.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px" /></div> <div> </div> <div><div>The Initiative Seminar Engineering Health has the subtitle <strong>Joining forces in healthcare solutions</strong>.
