Research Topics
  • Sludge treatment optimisation (anaerobic digestion and conditioning)
  • Sludge pretreatments as ultrasound or ozone
  • Sonolysis of organic micropollutants
  • Characterization of sewage, urban sludges and incineration ashes with particular regard to micropollutants fate
Research activities / Ongoing Projects
  • Collaborative project Italy-India on “Novel methods for the management of sewage sludge with recourse to recovery and recycle”
  • CNR- Curiosity Driven Project on “Ultrasound application for decontamination of sludge from recalcitrant compounds”.
  • Research project (Region Apulia) “Energy and material recovery through anaerobic digestion of residual biomasses”.
