Claudio Scalia (Palermo, Italia, 1992) is an Environmental Engineer graduate from University of Palermo. Currently, He is attending Environmental Engineering Master degree of the same University. He is doing a traineeship at the Department of Chemical Engineering in UAB in according of Erasmus+ for Traineeship program. His job at the WWTP lab consist on monitoring parameter on two pilot plants. The first one is a anaerobic/anoxic/ aerobic system (A2O) for the combined Carbon, Nitrogen and Phosphorus removal where the development of microbial community enriched in a putative PAO (Tetrasphaera) is studied with glutamate as organic substrate. At the second pilot plant, he’s monitoring the tart up phase of a system for carbon removal at low SRT and low energy consumption.
Claudio current interest are:
- Advance Waste water treatment;
- Enhanced biological phosphorus removal;
- Energy recovery from biowaste sludge.
