"Microbiology and Engineering – how does it fit together?"
Microbes are omnipresent in natural and technical environments, and understanding their behavior in and impact on these environments allows us to effectively use their potentials for our benefits. Wastewater treatment is a classic example where engineers have adopted natural processes to clean up water. Biological processes play a key role in wastewater treatment for removing organic carbon, nitrogen and phosphorous.
On the other side, microbes such as pathogens and antibiotic resistant bacteria should be contained and prevented from re-entering the environment esp. in high or harmful concentrations.
This presentation will address these topics by giving three examples where the abundance and activity of bacteria are key for reaching and keeping high qualities of our wastewater treatment plant effluents. The examples will touch on advanced nitrogen removal processes, enhanced biological removal of micropollutants and refractory COD, and abundance of pathogens and antibiotic resistance genes.
