Stephanie Rusch employed as new Creaternity PhD candidate

Published: 21 October 2021

Stephanie Rusch joined the Urban Water Research Group as a Ph.D. candidate within the new cross-border area of excellence Creaternity in September 2021. Her research is focused on the safe recovery of nutrients from blackwater. The process involves the nitrification blackwater digestate, removal of micropollutants and membrane distillation to produce a fertilizer for use in agriculture.

Stephanie studied bioengineering in Chile, obtained her master's in Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering at the Technical University of Hamburg. Her master thesis was about the biodegradation of micropollutants at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. She worked previously on biogas production from wastewater of a cattle sludge house and cellulose waste. She also has performed diverse experiments in plants and worked with a Membrane aerated bioreactor, which combines aerobic and anaerobic processes in one reactor for the removal of nitrogen.
