Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Sustainability
  • Ecosystem

Almudena Hospido mainly investigates Life-cycle assessment, Environmental engineering, Sewage treatment, Environmental impact assessment and Waste management. Almudena Hospido combines subjects such as Sludge, Public economics, Agricultural science, Data quality and Aquatic ecosystem with her study of Life-cycle assessment. As a part of the same scientific family, Almudena Hospido mostly works in the field of Environmental engineering, focusing on Pollution and, on occasion, Reuse, Sustainability and Eutrophication.

Her research in Sewage treatment intersects with topics in Energy consumption and Effluent. Almudena Hospido works mostly in the field of Environmental impact assessment, limiting it down to topics relating to Agriculture and, in certain cases, Eco-efficiency, as a part of the same area of interest. Her study in the fields of Wastewater under the domain of Waste management overlaps with other disciplines such as Work.

Her most cited work include:

  • Life cycle assessment applied to wastewater treatment: State of the art (301 citations)
  • Testing the assertion that ‘local food is best’: the challenges of an evidence-based approach (284 citations)
  • Environmental and economic profile of six typologies of wastewater treatment plants. (188 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her main research concerns Life-cycle assessment, Environmental impact assessment, Sewage treatment, Waste management and Environmental engineering. Life-cycle assessment is a primary field of her research addressed under Production. Her Environmental impact assessment research incorporates elements of Agriculture, Raw material, Environmental resource management, Final product and Product.

Her work deals with themes such as Environmental protection, Energy consumption, Efficient energy use, Wastewater and Nutrient, which intersect with Sewage treatment. Her Valorisation, Municipal solid waste, Sewage sludge treatment and Incineration study in the realm of Waste management interacts with subjects such as Work. Her Environmental engineering research includes themes of Waste disposal and Pollution.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Life-cycle assessment (69.05%)
  • Environmental impact assessment (38.10%)
  • Sewage treatment (25.00%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Wastewater (17.86%)
  • Life-cycle assessment (69.05%)
  • Sewage treatment (25.00%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her primary scientific interests are in Wastewater, Life-cycle assessment, Sewage treatment, Efficient energy use and Process engineering. Her Wastewater research includes elements of Valorisation and Bioplastic. Her work in Life-cycle assessment tackles topics such as Risk analysis which are related to areas like Sustainability.

Her Sewage treatment research entails a greater understanding of Environmental engineering. Her research integrates issues of Water treatment, Reliability engineering and Energy index in her study of Efficient energy use. Her work on Sludge, Incineration, Sewage sludge treatment and Resource recovery is typically connected to Ecotoxicity as part of general Waste management study, connecting several disciplines of science.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Perspectives from CO+RE: How COVID-19 changed our food systems and food security paradigms (27 citations)
  • The application of life cycle assessment (LCA) to wastewater treatment: A best practice guide and critical review. (23 citations)
  • ENERWATER – A standard method for assessing and improving the energy efficiency of wastewater treatment plants (22 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Agriculture
  • Sustainability
  • Ecosystem

Almudena Hospido focuses on Wastewater, Sewage treatment, Political science, Economies of scale and Water-energy nexus. The study incorporates disciplines such as Life-cycle assessment and Reuse in addition to Wastewater. The study incorporates disciplines such as Benchmarking, Efficient energy use and Process engineering in addition to Sewage treatment.

Her work in Political science incorporates the disciplines of Food systems, Supply chain resilience, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, International trade and Food security. Almudena Hospido integrates many fields, such as Food systems, Coronavirus and 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak, in her works. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Environmental engineering and Population equivalent.
