Dr. Zhen (Jason) He, Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Virginia Tech University and Director of the Environmental Biotechnology & Bioenergy Laboratory, will give a talk entitled: "Resource Recovery from Wastewater by Using Bioelectrochemical Systems: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow". Sustainable wastewater treatment demands maximized resource recovery and minimized resource consumption. Recovery of valuable resources such as energy, nutrient, water, and other value-added products, will help offset resource consumption by wastewater treatment. Bioelectrochemical systems (BES), as an emerging treatment concept, have attracted a great deal of attention in the past decades. This presentation will provide an overview of historical development of BES, current status of representative BES technologies, and perspectives towards future research and development. Read more.
Refreshments will be served.
