SHORT SUMMARY OF SCIENTIFIC LIFE
David Camilo Cueto Ferreira (Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, 1990) is a chemical engineering graduate from University of Cartagena (2012) and after which he worked as a researcher in the Chemical Engineering Department of this University. Currently, he is studying for a Master in Biological and Environmental Engineering in Autonomous University of Barcelona. In his Master Thesis he is working with a continuous process in lab scale for treatment of stream with high sulphide content. This oxidation process is performed by sulphur-oxidizing bacteria, and in that sense, it is been evaluating for different hydraulic retention time the optimal conditions for partial oxidation to sulphur and avoiding thiosulfate and sulphate formation. Sulphur is a desired product as it is insoluble and easy to recover, it also has high demand in agriculture and industry and then representing a good step for its application in a circular economy.
David’s current research interests are:
- Biogas upgrading.
- Sulphur recovery from biogas and wastewater.
