"Professor Mark van Loosdrecht, leader from the Environmental Biotechnology Group of TUDelft, visited the Environmental Biotechnology Lab of iBB on September 26 in the context of the collaboration established with Doctor Nídia Lourenço, principal investigator of the FCT-funded BIOTEXTILE project (PTDC/EBB-BIO/120624/2010). The project aims to assess the applicability of Aerobic Granular Sludge technology for dye-laden textile wastewater treatment and Mark van Loosdrecht is the inventor of this technology, which is already considered the next generation of wastewater biotreatment processes. Van Loosdrecht has received numerous awards, both from academia and industry, including the 2014 Spinoza Prize from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), the highest scientific distinction in the Netherlands. He is interested in extending the collaboration with iBB and he is currently co-supervising one MSc student with Nídia Lourenço and one PhD student with Nídia Lourenço and Helena Pinheiro. "
