    The combined use of Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOP) and conventional bio-processes has been suggested for the efficient treatment of wastewaters with a significant presence of recalcitrant contaminants. However, no ...
  • Fixed-bed column sorption of ammonium from treated municipal wastewater using clinoptilolite 

    Sheikh, Mahdi; Vecino Bello, Xanel; Reig i Amat, Mònica; Valderrama Angel, César Alberto; Cortina Pallás, José Luís (2020)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The sorption of ammonium (NH4+) ion was measured in a continuous fixed-bed column via employing a granular natural zeolite (clinoptilolite). The column performances were investigated at influent flow rate of 0.22 mL/min. ...
  • Optimal design and planning multi resource-based energy integration in process industries 

    Morakabatchiankar, Shabnam; Mele, Fenando D.; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (Elsevier, 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Recently, process industries have experienced a significant pressure to shift from centralized energy supplying systems to the in-situ exploitation of renewable resources. Special attention has been paid to multi resource-based ...
  • Synthesis and assessment of waste-to-resource routes for circular economy 

    Pacheco López, Adrian; Somoza Tornos, Ana; Muñoz Mata, Edrisi; Capon Garcia, Elisabeth; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (Elsevier, 2020)
    Conference report

    The benefits of the circular economy paradigm have been proven during the past two decades, but its application poses some challenges that still need to be tackled. This contribution presents a systematic way to generate ...
  • A MILP model for enhancing wastewater networks by introducing reclaimed wastewater usage 

    Lechtenberg, Fabian; Somoza Tornos, Ana; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are an example of available but underutilized waste-to-resource processes. Economic benefit opportunities can be generated through the design and operation of WWTPs following a circular ...
  • Improving photo-Fenton process by hydrogen peroxide dosage strategies. Dissolved oxygen performance indicator 

    Yu, Xiangwei; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Miralles Cuevas, Sara; Cabrera Reina, Alejandro; Pérez Moya, Montserrat (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Fenton and photo-Fenton are Advanced Oxidation processes driven by the supply of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). However, excessive hydrogen peroxide supply results in unproductive reactions and causes the process performance ...
  • Optimal Design and planning supply chains of multi renewable resource-based energy/material applied in process industries 

    Morakabatchiankar, Shabnam; Mele, Fenando D.; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this work, the effects of multi renewable resource-based energy integration in material supply chains are analysed under stochastic and deterministic conditions. The proposed approach is based on the development of a ...
  • Systematic generation and evaluation of waste-to-resource alternatives 

    Pacheco López, Adrian; Somoza Tornos, Ana; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Circular economy appears to be the only suitable approach for closing the materials loop and so to make sustainable current development levels. In this work, a procedure to systematically generate a list of ...
  • Modeling and simulation of complex nonlinear dynamic processes using data based models: application to photo-Fenton process 

    Shokry Abdelaleem Taha Zied, Ahmed; Audino, Francesca; Vicente, Patricia; Escudero Bakx, Gerard; Pérez Moya, Montserrat; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (Elsevier, 2015)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper investigates data based modelling of complex nonlinear processes, for which a first principle model useful for process monitoring and control is not available. These empirical models may be used as soft sensors ...
