The work of the Water and Waste Treatment team (TED) is organized around an integrated global vision of wastewater and waste treatment and recovery.
This systemic approach is based on a coupled experimentation-modeling-simulation approach of the processes to treat, reuse and valorize urban or industrial effluents (production of H2, CH4, heat; recovery of nutrients, metals, reuse, etc.). It aims to contribute to the major challenges of the 21st century and more particularly to the ecological and energy transitions.
To this end, the team develops multi-scale approaches to the treatment and recovery of liquid and solid effluents in suspension.
At the material scale, the team has the skills for specific characterizations such as rheology and bio-calorimetry.
At the process scale, the studies focus on the application of innovative mechanisms in biological, thermal or physico-chemical reactors. The characterization of transfer, material and kinetic quantities leads to the development of dedicated models.
These models are used within specific integrative methodologies when two or more processes are coupled. These methods are developed to determine the optimal operation of the coupling and/or the industrial site hosting these processes.
The themes developed in the TED team are articulated around the following three axes:
dedicated to the dimensioning of water and waste treatment processes as well as to the understanding of the transfer mechanisms and reaction processes involved.
Sub-axes: bioreactors, reactive filters, OVH, gasification, rheology, calorimetry
in which studies are devoted to the optimization of processes and procedures for the material and/or energy recovery of effluents and waste (phosphorus recovery, production of energy carriers: H2, CH4, etc.)
Sub-axes: crystallization, bioH2 and energy carriers from biomass, recovery of nutrients, etc.
focused on the study of the coupling of processes developed in the team associated with an approach to optimize flows by ad hoc methods of industrial symbiosis.
Sub-axis: process coupling, energy optimization, etc.
