Webinar: AGeNT – Aerobic Granular Sludge technology combined with microbial agents to degrade toxic pollutants in wastewater

Monday, December 13, 2021 - 14:20

About the webinar

Growing water scarcity urges for wastewater reuse and for developing energy and cost efficient, lower footprint wastewater treatment combined with resource recovery. This webinar aims at presenting the potential of the Aerobic Granular Sludge technology from the point of view of resource recovery, namely EPS recovery, and the feasibility in using those biopolymers for devising inocula to be used in bioaugmentation processes to reduce the amount of pollutants discharged in the natural environment.
