Project Title: Nanobubbles-based Biofilter Technology for Wastewater Treatment
Project Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Eng. I Made Joni, M.Sc.
Project Description:
Water is one of the most elements of life, however as the population of the world has increased caused scarcity of clean. Thus, handling a clean water quality is one of the key challenges to provide an efficient Urban Wastewater Treatment (UWWT) system that allows water reuse by recycling treated wastewater for beneficial purposes, such as agricultural and landscape irrigation, industrial processes, and toilet. This research focus on the design and investigation of Nanobubbles-based biofilter technology to enhance biofilm activities, break down nutrients (e.g., nitrogen and phosphorous-containing compounds) and organic carbon as well as capture other unwanted contaminants in the influent water. The investigation includes the effect of Nanobubbles on the growth of the biofilm and its performance in the degradation of pollutants. The study also includes the capability of nanobubbles to deliver a cost-effective wastewater solution to enhance treatment processes, aeration, or flotation systems to improve energy efficiency.
