Seminar of Department of Geography, UT and Centre of Excellence EcolChange
Speaker: Rauno Lust is a PhD student in the Department of Geography, University of Tartu.
Title of the talk: Enhancing nitrate removal from waters with low organic carbon concentration using bioeletrochemical systems
Time: Wednesday, 27. November 2019 at 16.00
Place: Tartu, Vanemuise 46-327 (JG Granö auditorium)
Summary: Assesments of groundwater aquifiers made around the world show that in many cases nitrate concentrations are exceeding the safe drinking water threshold. This seminar will give overview how microbial electrosynthesis could be used to enhance nitrate removal from waters with low organic carbon concentration.
