Topic of thesis: Extending the Benchmark Simulation Model no. 2 with processes involving greenhouse gas emissions and micropollutants in order to test different control strategies with evaluation tools.
Starting date: May 2012
Background: M.Sc. in Environmental Technology, Wageningen University, The Netherlands
Supervisors: Krist V. Gernaey, Ulf Jeppsson, Xavier Flores-Alsina, Benedek Plósz and Ulrich Krühne
Laura is going to model the occurrence and fate of micropollutants in a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) by extending the Benchmark Simulation Model no. 2 (BSM2) with models that predict the fate of micropollutants. The BSM2 is also going to be extended with processes involving greenhouse gas emissions in order to calculate the footprint of the wastewater treatment. After validation of the extended BSM2 different control strategies will be tested according to evaluation tools in order to optimize the performance of the WWTP.
