Bio- en chemische systeemtechnologie, reactor engineering en veiligheid

The research of the team of Prof. Ilse Smets is centered around monitoring, modeling, optimization and control of biological wastewater treatment systems (i.e., classic activated sludge systems as well as membrane bioreactors) with a specific focus on the bioflocculation dynamics of activated sludge (including in depth microscopic analysis). While previous research predominantly concentrated on aerobic reactor processes, the current interest extends to anaerobic processes as well.
