AOMLab

The aim of the Algae & Organic Matter Laboratory (AOM Lab) is to combine fundamental scientific understanding of the biological and physicochemical properties of microalgal and organic matter systems with the latest engineering technology, to provide sustainable solutions for a) the treatment of microalgae and organic matter in the water industry and b) the application of microalgae as a resource in the biotechnology industry. We are primarily concerned with the development and optimisation of advanced characterisation techniques; separation technologies, including coagulation-flocculation, oxidation, flotation and membrane processes; and monitoring methods, particularly those that can be applied in situ.
