Due to unforseen circumstances this seminar has been cancelled.

Professor Bruce Jefferson, School of Water Sciences, Cranfield University, will give a seminar entitled "Low energy wastewater treatment: breathing new life into plants" at the James Hutton Institute in Aberdeen. It will be broadcast live to the Dundee site.


Bruce is the Professor of Water Engineering within the Cranfield Water Sciences Institute and has worked at Cranfield since joining in 1997 as a postdoctoral research fellow. In addition he holds honorary professorial positions at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Science (Australia) and the University of Johannesburg (South Africa) along with a visiting position at the University of New South Wales (Australia). His work is focussed on the development of new innovations and the adaptation of existing technologies for water and waste water treatment. A particular focus at the current time centres around the development of low energy solutions for nutrient removal and recovery. Bruce is currently working with eight PhD researchers on this topic as well as postdoctoral researches focussed on demonstration level schemes.
