Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats to global health, food security, and development today, leading to a growing number of difficult-to-treat infections and an economic burden. It can affect anyone of any age and in any country. It is mainly accelerated by the misuse and abuse of antibiotics, poor hygiene, and a lack of...

In the pursuit of reducing carbon footprint and in view of increasing energy prices, energy efficiency is more important than ever before. Batch-wise operated aerobic granular sludge reactors consume up to 50% less energy compared to conventional activated sludge systems because pumping energy is reduced and mixing equipment is not needed....

Achieving a neutral/positive energy balance without compromising discharge standards is one of the main goals of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) in terms of sustainability. Aerobic granular sludge (AGS) technology promises high treatment performance with low energy and footprint requirement. In this study, high-rate activated sludge (HRAS...

Over the past twenty years, various commercial technologies have been deployed to remove ammonia (NH<sub>4</sub>–N) from anaerobic digestion (AD) liquors. In recent years many anaerobic digesters have been upgraded to include a pre-treatment, such as the thermal hydrolysis process (THP), to produce more biogas, increasing NH<sub>4</sub>–N...

A novel magnetic 2D/2D heterogeneous structure MXene@NiFe-LDH@Fe<sub>3</sub>O<sub>4</sub> was prepared for immobilization of laccase. In this work, two-dimensional MXene nanosheets with abundant surface functional groups were heterogeneously assembled with layered double hydroxide (LDH) by in situ co-precipitation method, and magnetic...

Ca. Accumulibacter was the predominant microorganism (relative FISH bio-abundance of 67 ± 5%) in a lab-scale sequential batch reactor that accomplished enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) while using glucose and acetate as the carbon sources (1:1 COD-based ratio). Both organic compounds were completely anaerobically consumed. The...

Limiting the introduction of excess nitrogen to natural water sources is a growing priority for water security and environmental health. This poses particular difficulties in urban environments where available land for potential solutions is limited. A promising option is the integrated fixed-film activated sludge (IFAS) process that requires...

The maintenance of people’s lifestyle against global climate change, exhaustion of groundwater, depletion of minerals, and water scarcity has instigated the recycling and reuse of water from unlikely sources. This situation has motivated researchers to develop effective technologies for treating wastewater, enabling its reuse. Water security has...

Stikkers, Anastasia (author)
This thesis provides knowledge on factors affecting the representativeness of wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) for monitoring the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The application of WBE to monitor health parameters has become essential due to the COVID-19 outbreak in March 2020. WBE is a well-known method to track the SARS-CoV-2 virus in wastewater and is...

Kokubo Roche, Akemi (author)
Water scarcity problems will continue to exacerbate in many parts of the world, urging society to mitigate or adapt. Consequently, unconventional water resources, such as municipal wastewater, are becoming more relevant. This thesis aims to measure and evaluate the social impacts of wastewater treatment (WWT) systems potentially stemming from...

Della Pietra, Diana (author)
In our effort to control it, water in our cities has progressively been confined between lines, canalised or culverted underground, resulting in its gradual isolation and erasure from our sight and collective imagination. As freshwater availability and water-related hazards are brought to the forefront of sustainable development goals, the long...

Bonavita, Daniele (author)
From 2018 to 2020, the city of Breda (NL) faced drought, with significant economic losses and water scarcity problems. The water board within which the city is located began to consider new possible water management practices, due to the unsustainability of the current ones. This study aims to investigate how a change of the current paradigm can...

Since the start of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, the monitoring of SARS-CoV-2 by way of viral RNA sequencing of wastewater has proven to be an efficient and effective way of estimating COVID-19 cases in population groups. A recently developed pipeline also enables us to estimate SARS-CoV-2 variant abundance using viral samples from wastewater. This...

Nika, Ioanna (author)
Lineage abundance estimation of SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater is a technique that aims to monitor the lineage prevalence in communities and help contain the COVID-19 pandemic. Lineages are collections of closely related mutants of a virus. It is suggested that the genome sequences of lineages differ across the globe due to random mutations or...

Monitoring of SARS-CoV-2 variants is crucial to efforts in combating the COVID-19 pandemic. Lineage level abundance estimates for SARS-CoV-2 can be obtained from viral material present in domestic wastewater. The abundance predictions can be made at different levels of granularity-individual lineage level(high granularity) or variant level(low...

Muñoz Sierra, Julian (author)
Industrial wastewaters generated in chemical industries are often characterized by extreme conditions, such as the presence of complex, recalcitrant, and toxic aromatic compounds, high temperature, and high salinity. The mentioned conditions predominantly occur when chemical industries reduce process water use or strive for closing water loops....

The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemia has been one of the most difficult challenges humankind has recently faced. Wastewater-based epidemiology has emerged as a tool for surveillance and mitigation of potential viral outbreaks, circumventing biases introduced by clinical patient testing. Due to the situation...

Organic micropollutants (OMPs) that occur in the aquatic environment are an emerging concern. Adsorption by granular zeolites and regenerating exhausted zeolites by gaseous ozone is an innovative and advanced treatment technology for removing OMPs from wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluent. In this study, WWTP effluent spiked with eleven...

Future climatic, demographic, technological, urban and socio-economic challenges call for more flexible and sustainable wastewater infrastructure systems. Exploratory modelling can help to investigate the consequences of these developments on the infrastructure. In order to explore large numbers of adaptation strategies, we need to re-balance...

Poor lipid degradation limits low-temperature anaerobic treatment of domestic wastewater even when psychrophiles are used. We combined metagenomics and metaproteomics to find lipolytic bacteria and their potential, and actual, cold-adapted extracellular lipases in anaerobic membrane bioreactors treating domestic wastewater at 4 and 15 °C. Of...
