Bio/Research

Dr. Mehrvar's research laboratory studies the treatment of industrial and municipal wastewater by advanced oxidation technologies integrated with biological processes for optimal removal of contaminants in wastewater. These combined processes are optimized to maximize the degradation of organic pollutants while reducing total costs of overall processes. The lab is equipped with several experimental set-ups for wastewater treatment research, including aerobic and anaerobic bioreactors, photoreactors, sonophotoreactors, adsorption columns, and several small-scale reactors. It is also equipped with analytical instruments, including a respirometer, a total organic carbon/total nitrogen analyzer, a BET surface area analyzer, an incubator/shaker and a spectrophotometer.
