Simulating sludge: a novel approach to visualising anaerobic digestion

Description
After Dr Davide Dapelo completed his degree in theoretical physics in his native Genova, he took an EU-financed research course on renewable energies. This included an industry placement with a company that project-built anaerobic digesters.While there, Davide realised there were ways to improve the anaerobic digestion (AD) mixing process, which gave him the idea for his PhD topic: the application of computer simulation of flow methods to a specific aspect of wastewater treatment. To pursue the idea, he sought out top academics working in this field, one of whom was John Bridgeman, Professor of Environmental Engineering at Birmingham – and as a result left Italy to pursue his academic career in Birmingham.
