Associated research grant:09/15984-0 - Bioenergy production from wastewaters and environmental fitting of liquid and solid wastes generated, AP.TEM


This proposal relates to the Thematic Project "Bioenergy Production from Wastewaters and Environmental Fitting of Liquid and Solid Wastes Generated, Proc. n. 2009/15984-0". The research team has been successful in producing new fundamental and applied knowledge related to the production of methane and hydrogen mainly by anaerobic processing of vinasse. The economic and environmental viability of the processes under investigation can now be studied so that one can indicate which technologies are more suitable for implementation. Multicriteria methods for decision taking are used for this task; however, they require a careful evaluation of the reactors and unit operations needed for the treatment processes. Thus, the visit of Prof. René Bañares-Alcántara, from the Engineering Sciences Department of University of Oxford, who has expertise in both fields, reactor design and decision making procedures, may represent a strong impulse to the investigation team in this area of research.
