Several Swette center students will be presenting posters during Arizona Water Association (AZWA)'s 88th Annual Conference and Exhibition this Wednesday afternoon, May 6, from 5-6:30 PM. A common theme among the posters is microbial electrochemical cells (MECs). Dongwon Ki is presenting on bioremediation of primary sludge in MECs. Michelle Young is presenting a poster on using MECs as biosensors to detect differences in different pretreated waste activated sludge streams. Mohamed Mahmoud is presenting on leachate bioremediation using MECs. Check out their work!
