Best poster award to Wider Uptake researchers
At the 11th International Water Association conference in Gdansk, researchers from the University of Palermo received an award for their poster on sewage treatment.
The poster Sewage sludge reduction by using an OSA-MBR pilot plant received the ‘best poster’ award at the conference in Gdansk.
The authors, P.M. Bosco Mofatto, A. Cosenza, D. Di Trapani and G. Mannina, are all engaged in Wider Uptake.
The following posters were also presented:
- Polyhydroxyalkanoates production from waste water: optimizing the enrichment, accumulation and extraction steps (Authors: A. Mineo (presenter), L. Isern – Cazorla, M. E. Suárez Ojeda, G. Mannina)
- Enhancing MBR operation for water reuse: a pilot plant experiments (Authors: A. Cosenza, H. Gulhan; G. Mannina (presenter))
During his oral presentation, Giorgio Mannina provided updates from Wider Uptake, focusing on the water resource recovery demonstration case study at Palermo University. The focus of the presentation was recent findings of water reuse experimental activities related to membrane operation, including reduction of greenhouse gas emissions for climate change mitigation.
– Participants showed very high interest with questions and engagement, says Mannina.
Overall it was a very successful event and an occasion for engaging people on the topics addressed in Wider Uptake.
