Focal points and main thrusts of research:
Introduction: ​One of the key points in the field of environmental protection is to
keep/restore the good quality of natural water bodies. The most widely used
and environment friendly methods for the treatment of wastewaters are based
on biodegradation. Beyond the determination of biodegradability of waste
compounds, researches of our group focus on the  modeling, development and
optimization of biotechnologies (activated sludge, biofilm, microbial fuel
cell systems) capable of the efficient elimination/utilization of different
origin (industrial/domestic) wastewaters.
