Proposals for thesis
THE PROPOSED PROJECTS FOLLOW THE AGENDA 2030 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

WASTE WATERS TREATMENT AND REUSE
- Kinetics of the phytoremediation of different waste waters (urban, domestic, leachate, etc) in decentralised networks
- Identification of parameters and methodologies for the estimation of the performance of a treatment plant
- Reuse of waste waters for agriculture and groundwater recharge

SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES
- Sustainable leachate treatment with low cost technologies
- Semi-aerobic landfilling and innovative management in tropical countries
- Innovative urban eco-centers for the informal recovery of waste

WASTE AND CIRCULAR ECONOMY
- Management and recovery of organic waste for the production of the biopolymer precursors
- Environmental Engineering for sustainable building: decentralised networks, reuse of the recycled building materials, recovery of the abandoned and degraded areas
- Recovery and valorisation of specific waste, in the framework of the circular economy

Some of the thesis are shared with foreigner university like the Tsinghua university in Beijing (China), the KHULNA university in Bangladesh, the university of Biskra in Algeria, the Durban university in South Africa, the university Louis Berger of Saint Louis in Senegal.
