Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Oxygen
  • Organic chemistry
  • Ecology

Marta Carballa mostly deals with Anaerobic digestion, Sludge, Chromatography, Biodegradation and Environmental chemistry. Her work on Anaerobic digestion is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Process. Her study looks at the intersection of Sludge and topics like Waste treatment with Mesophile and Ozone.

The Chromatography study combines topics in areas such as Galaxolide and Activated sludge. The various areas that Marta Carballa examines in her Biodegradation study include Hydraulic retention time and Sorption. Marta Carballa combines subjects such as Anammox, Chemical oxygen demand and Nitrification with her study of Environmental chemistry.

Her most cited work include:

  • Behavior of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and hormones in a sewage treatment plant (1144 citations)
  • Minimizing losses in bio-electrochemical systems: the road to applications (319 citations)
  • How are pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs) removed from urban wastewaters (289 citations)

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

Marta Carballa mainly focuses on Anaerobic digestion, Sewage treatment, Pulp and paper industry, Wastewater and Environmental chemistry. Her work carried out in the field of Anaerobic digestion brings together such families of science as Sludge, Waste management, Microbial population biology, Chromatography and Mesophile. The concepts of her Chromatography study are interwoven with issues in Continuous stirred-tank reactor, Waste disposal, Galaxolide and Bioreactor.

Her work in Pulp and paper industry addresses issues such as Hydraulic retention time, which are connected to fields such as Biofuel and Aeration. Her research in Wastewater intersects with topics in Diclofenac and Effluent. Her work focuses on many connections between Environmental chemistry and other disciplines, such as Nitrification, that overlap with her field of interest in Sequencing batch reactor, Ammonium and Nitrite.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Anaerobic digestion (37.27%)
  • Sewage treatment (28.18%)
  • Pulp and paper industry (23.64%)

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

  • Pulp and paper industry (23.64%)
  • Wastewater (25.45%)
  • Anaerobic digestion (37.27%)

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

Pulp and paper industry, Wastewater, Anaerobic digestion, Sewage treatment and Activated sludge are her primary areas of study. Her Pulp and paper industry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Granular activated carbon, Bioassay and Effluent. Her Wastewater research includes themes of Photodissociation, Chemical structure, Membrane and Catalysis.

Marta Carballa has included themes like Sludge, Firmicutes, Microbial population biology, Manure and Biogas in her Anaerobic digestion study. Her work on Thermal hydrolysis, Chemical oxygen demand and Hydraulic retention time as part of general Sewage treatment study is frequently connected to Biotransformation, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. Her study explores the link between Activated sludge and topics such as Microorganism that cross with problems in Heterotroph, Environmental protection, Microbial ecology and Anammox.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Application of immobilized TiO2 on PVDF dual layer hollow fibre membrane to improve the photocatalytic removal of pharmaceuticals in different water matrices (28 citations)
  • Organic overloading affects the microbial interactions during anaerobic digestion in sewage sludge reactors (23 citations)
  • Resource recovery from pig manure via an integrated approach: A technical and economic assessment for full-scale applications. (21 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Ecology

Marta Carballa spends much of her time researching Anaerobic digestion, Biogas, Sludge, Sewage treatment and Biotransformation. In her works, she performs multidisciplinary study on Anaerobic digestion and Microbiome. The subject of her Biogas research is within the realm of Waste management.

Marta Carballa has researched Sludge in several fields, including Thermal hydrolysis, Suspended solids, Methanogen, Methanogenesis and Mesophile. Her work in Sewage treatment tackles topics such as Pulp and paper industry which are related to areas like Ferric. Her Activated sludge study is concerned with the field of Wastewater as a whole.
