Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oxygen
  • Organic chemistry
  • Carbon dioxide

His primary scientific interests are in Nitrification, Waste management, Sewage treatment, Sequencing batch reactor and Denitrification. His Nitrification study incorporates themes from Environmental chemistry, Limiting oxygen concentration and Nitrite. His Waste management study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ammonia and Polyhydroxyalkanoates.

His research in Sewage treatment intersects with topics in Wastewater, Anammox and Process engineering. The study incorporates disciplines such as Granule, Pulp and paper industry, Activated sludge and Bioreactor in addition to Sequencing batch reactor. His study looks at the relationship between Denitrification and topics such as Ecology, which overlap with Chemical oxygen demand.

His most cited work include:

  • Activated sludge models ASM1, ASM2, ASM2d and ASM3 (1296 citations)
  • The sharon process: an innovative method for nitrogen removal from ammonium-rich waste water (816 citations)
  • Microbiology and biochemistry of the enhanced biological phosphate removal process (770 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Environmental engineering, Sewage treatment, Activated sludge, Nitrification and Biofilm. His studies deal with areas such as Reverse osmosis, Biofouling, Aeration, Bioreactor and Pulp and paper industry as well as Environmental engineering. His Sewage treatment research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Wastewater, Effluent and Sewage.

M.C.M. van Loosdrecht interconnects Biomass and Sequencing batch reactor in the investigation of issues within Activated sludge. His research in Nitrification intersects with topics in Environmental chemistry, Denitrification, Nitrite and Ammonium. His Biofilm study also includes

  • Environmental chemistry (15.17%)

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

M.C.M. van Loosdrecht spends much of his time researching Biofouling, Reverse osmosis, Environmental chemistry, Environmental engineering and Effluent. His Environmental chemistry research includes themes of Sludge, Phosphorus, Phosphate, Vivianite and Enhanced biological phosphorus removal. His work carried out in the field of Enhanced biological phosphorus removal brings together such families of science as Denitrification, Biochemistry, Sequencing batch reactor and Anoxic waters.

M.C.M. van Loosdrecht combines subjects such as Bacterial growth, Wastewater, Water treatment, Sewage treatment and Pulp and paper industry with his study of Effluent. His Wastewater study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Bioreactor. His Pulp and paper industry research integrates issues from Activated sludge, Anammox, Biomass, Anaerobic exercise and Dewatering.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Vivianite as the main phosphate mineral in digested sewage sludge and its role for phosphate recovery (65 citations)
  • Cooperation between Candidatus Competibacter and Candidatus Accumulibacter clade I, in denitrification and phosphate removal processes. (57 citations)
  • Vivianite as an important iron phosphate precipitate in sewage treatment plants. (51 citations)

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

  • Oxygen
  • Organic chemistry
  • Carbon dioxide

His primary areas of study are Environmental chemistry, Environmental engineering, Wastewater, Total organic carbon and Reverse osmosis. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Sludge, Enhanced biological phosphorus removal, Activated sludge and Phosphate, Vivianite. The study incorporates disciplines such as Phosphorus and Biochemistry in addition to Enhanced biological phosphorus removal.

His Phosphate research includes elements of Denitrification, Chemical oxygen demand and Anoxic waters. His studies in Environmental engineering integrate themes in fields like Anammox, Bioreactor and Microbial population biology. His Wastewater study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Greenhouse gas and Nitrogen.
