Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Enzyme
  • Ecology

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Life-cycle assessment, Biodegradation, Environmental impact assessment, Manganese peroxidase and Chromatography. Her Life-cycle assessment research includes themes of Waste management, Environmental engineering, Greenhouse gas and Eco-efficiency. Maria Teresa Moreira combines subjects such as Environmental chemistry, Bjerkandera and Enzyme with her study of Biodegradation.

Maria Teresa Moreira has included themes like Agriculture and Fishery in her Environmental impact assessment study. Her Manganese peroxidase study incorporates themes from Kraft process, Hydraulic retention time, Acetone and Anthracene. The study incorporates disciplines such as Membrane reactor, Myceliophthora thermophila, Laccase and Bioreactor in addition to Chromatography.

Her most cited work include:

  • Decolorization of ion-exchange effluents derived from sugar-mill operations by Bjerkandera sp. BOS55 (304 citations)
  • Environmental and economic profile of six typologies of wastewater treatment plants. (188 citations)
  • Understanding the factors controlling the removal of trace organic contaminants by white-rot fungi and their lignin modifying enzymes: a critical review. (178 citations)

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

Maria Teresa Moreira mainly focuses on Life-cycle assessment, Environmental impact assessment, Waste management, Chromatography and Environmental engineering. Her Life-cycle assessment study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Carbon footprint, Greenhouse gas, Agriculture, Biomass and Sustainability. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Benchmarking, Fishery, Eco-efficiency and Agricultural science.

She focuses mostly in the field of Waste management, narrowing it down to topics relating to Pulp and paper industry and, in certain cases, Raw material, Biorefinery and Organosolv. As part of one scientific family, Maria Teresa Moreira deals mainly with the area of Chromatography, narrowing it down to issues related to the Bioreactor, and often Manganese peroxidase and Phanerochaete. Her Manganese peroxidase research also works with subjects such as

  • Kraft process which intersects with area such as Kraft paper,
  • Biodegradation which is related to area like Environmental chemistry.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Life-cycle assessment (38.54%)
  • Environmental impact assessment (20.83%)
  • Waste management (17.71%)

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

  • Life-cycle assessment (38.54%)
  • Environmental impact assessment (20.83%)
  • Sustainability (10.07%)

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

Maria Teresa Moreira spends much of her time researching Life-cycle assessment, Environmental impact assessment, Sustainability, Carbon footprint and Biorefinery. She performs multidisciplinary studies into Life-cycle assessment and Urban metabolism in her work. Her Environmental impact assessment study combines topics in areas such as Waste management, Engineering ethics, Arable land, Agricultural science and Crop rotation.

Her research in Sustainability intersects with topics in Agriculture, Scallop, Environmental health and Environmental planning. Her Carbon footprint research incorporates elements of Water use and Nutrient density. Her Raw material research includes elements of Pulp and paper industry and Environmental protection.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Towards an environmentally sustainable and healthy Atlantic dietary pattern: Life cycle carbon footprint and nutritional quality. (26 citations)
  • Transitioning towards the bio‐economy: Assessing the social dimension through a stakeholder lens (24 citations)
  • Insight into antibiotics removal: Exploring the photocatalytic performance of a Fe3O4/ZnO nanocomposite in a novel magnetic sequential batch reactor. (22 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Enzyme
  • Ecology

Life-cycle assessment, Environmental impact assessment, Sustainability, Greenhouse gas and Biorefinery are her primary areas of study. The various areas that Maria Teresa Moreira examines in her Life-cycle assessment study include Municipal solid waste, Lignin, Waste disposal, Efficient energy use and Renewable energy. Her work focuses on many connections between Environmental impact assessment and other disciplines, such as Waste management, that overlap with her field of interest in Thermal oxidizer.

Her study focuses on the intersection of Sustainability and fields such as Environmental planning with connections in the field of Supply chain, Climate change and Fishing. Her work on Carbon footprint as part of her general Greenhouse gas study is frequently connected to Data envelopment analysis and Order, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. Her research integrates issues of Food science and Quercetin in her study of Biorefinery.
