Wastewater treatment

Tratamiento de Aguas Residuales

Ceit's Water and Waste Group has over 30 years experience in researching advanced technologies for the treatment of urban and industrial wastewater.

Thanks to a multidisciplinary team that integrates knowledge of biology, biochemistry, mathematical modeling and engineering, the research group has capabilities for both experimental analysis and the development of simulation tools related to a wide range of treatment technologies for the removal and recovery of organic matter and nutrients in wastewater.

Ceit has extensive experience in a wide range of technologies, including:

  • Biological systems on fixed or mobile support for removal of organic matter and nutrients (biofilters, MBBR and other biofilm processes).

  • Biological systems in combination with membranes (MBR, AnMBR, advanced forward osmosis systems).

  • Advanced systems for the elimination of N and P (processes in suspension or with fixed biomass with different configurations, Anammox).

  • Development of technological solutions for the elimination of emerging compounds in wastewater.
