Wastewater Treatment & Resource Recovery

The UWTC has a unique focus on the interface between scientific and technological research and addressing the challenges of industry.  The Centre developed from the activities of a group of staff carrying out research and consultancy work associated with wastewater and environmental management.  This has resulted in valuable links being established between academia and industry, which continue to be expanded and reinforced.

The research team has strengths in the areas of environmental technology, specialising in engineering applications of biological, physical, and chemical processes for the control and abatement of environmental pollutants, and recovery of resources and energy from waste streams.

Some of the key areas of expertise and competencies that exist within the centre include:

  • Wastewater treatment
    • Rehabilitation of treatment plants
    • Augmentation of existing treatment plants
    • Wastewater treatment process modelling
  • Solid waste treatment
    • Landfill emission modelling
    • Resource recovery from waste
    • AD process control and design
The Centre's stated mission is to provide a service to the water industry (in the UK and overseas) in three main areas: research, academic and consultancy.  In the many projects carried out to date the details on consultancy, research activities and opportunities for education and training are listed on the left hand drop down menu.
