CONSULTANT: Water Pollution Impacts, Control and Remediation
Water Quality, Fermentation and Applied Biotechnology
WATER POLLUTION - Impacts, Control and Remediation
Solid and multidisciplinary background in Chemical Engineering and
Sciences (Microbiology, Biochemistry, Ecology), together with years of
experience, enables making a contribution in a broad field of Water Pollution.
Based on this background are broadly based specialty consultation activities,
My biochemical engineering interests are focused on the area of environmental biotechnology. Our unique discoveries of metal sorbing properties of certain types of biomass open opportunities in the development of new (bio)sorption technology for purification of industrial effluents and metal recovery. Research in this area is interdisciplinary and spans a broad choice of diversified projects from process engineering and optimization to molecular modeling. Activities include project development, research proposal composition including budgetary estimations, project (co-)supervision, piloting and start-up advising.
Examples of Biosorption Project Activities :
uptake of toxic metals, precious metals, radionuclides, etc.
ion exchange studies, chelation, microprecipitation, etc.
FERMENTATION process optimization research activity in the past has eventually evolved into the above activities due to their innovative nature and high relevance.
