This is a joint webcast with the Water Research Foundation.

In June 2015, legacy Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF, now the Water Research Foundation) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding for their complementary interests in the pursuit and continuing support of basic research and advancement of new technologies to efficiently recover valuable resources from wastewater and stormwater. The MOU helps to better link fundamental research (e.g., funded by NSF) with applied research (e.g., funded by WRF and LIFT). As a result of this MOU, three projects were funded: 1) Bioaugmentation of Activated Sludge with High Activity Nitrifying Granules/Flocs; 2) Oxygenic Photogranule Process for Energy Positive Wastewater Treatment; and 3) Biofilm-Enhanced Anaerobic Membrane Bioreactor for Low Temperature Domestic Wastewater Treatment. This webinar will provide an update on the three projects as they enter into their final year of research.
