Objectives

Application of advanced oxidation processes for water and wastewater treatment: removal of contaminants of emerging concern and microorganism inactivation.

_ Development of new eco-efficient solutions for the management of agro-industrial by-products and the environmental modelling of multiple-use watersheds focused on the interplay between anthropogenic pressures and stream water contamination, as well as of catchments affected by natural or man-induced disasters.

_ Study of the microbial and biochemistry activity of the soil related with global warming, nutrient cycling and energy effort for nutrient acquisition.
