Anaerobic methane oxidation processes in wastewater management, as sustainable applications against climate change

Project description

Understanding anaerobic methane oxidation processes

Wastewater management and sewage treatment are important in global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Technological advancements have led to qualitative steps taken during the last 20 years due to the discovery of the anaerobic oxidation processes of both ammonia and methane and their role in wastewater treatment. This is why understanding the microbial ecophysiology in full-scale engineered sewage systems is important. However, recent studies on physiology and microbial ecology have yielded limited results, although such studies could lead to sustainable wastewater management. The EU-funded MICROWATER project will apply innovative biological methodologies and advanced bio-reactor technology combined with the use of existing treatment systems as models to understand and disentangle the potential of the processes in wastewater management.
