Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oxygen
  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry

Nicolas Bernet mostly deals with Anaerobic digestion, Methane, Biogas, Biomass and Pulp and paper industry. The various areas that Nicolas Bernet examines in his Anaerobic digestion study include Waste management, Biofuel, Waste treatment, Bioenergy and Food science. His research integrates issues of Denitrification and Nitrification in his study of Waste management.

In his work, Hydrogen, PARTICLE SIZE REDUCTION, Activated carbon and Carbon is strongly intertwined with Food waste, which is a subfield of Methane. His Biomass research incorporates elements of Fluidized bed, Organic matter, Biodegradation and Environmental engineering. His work deals with themes such as Microorganism, Chlorella vulgaris and Digestion, which intersect with Pulp and paper industry.

His most cited work include:

  • Anaerobic digestion of microalgae as a necessary step to make microalgal biodiesel sustainable. (891 citations)
  • Experimental study on a coupled process of production and anaerobic digestion of Chlorella vulgaris (316 citations)
  • Aerobic granular sludge—a case report (213 citations)

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

Anaerobic digestion, Pulp and paper industry, Biofilm, Denitrification and Nitrification are his primary areas of study. His studies in Anaerobic digestion integrate themes in fields like Biomass, Waste management, Biogas and Environmental engineering. His studies deal with areas such as Methanogenesis, Biorefinery, Effluent and Dark fermentation as well as Pulp and paper industry.

His Biofilm research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ecology, Microbial population biology, Microorganism, Microbiology and Chemical engineering. He has included themes like Environmental chemistry, Anoxic waters, Biochemistry and Nitrate in his Denitrification study. While the research belongs to areas of Nitrification, Nicolas Bernet spends his time largely on the problem of Sequencing batch reactor, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Phosphorus, Activated sludge and Nuclear chemistry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Anaerobic digestion (32.49%)
  • Pulp and paper industry (21.32%)
  • Biofilm (18.78%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Food science (13.71%)
  • Biogas (15.74%)
  • Hydrogen production (8.12%)

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

His main research concerns Food science, Biogas, Hydrogen production, Fermentation and Pulp and paper industry. His Food science research includes themes of Hydrogen, Acetic acid, Activated sludge and Microbial population biology. His Biogas study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Energy crop, Digestate, Anaerobic digestion, Partial pressure and Biomass.

His research on Anaerobic digestion concerns the broader Methane. His work carried out in the field of Fermentation brings together such families of science as Lactic acid fermentation, Butyric acid and Bioprocess. His Pulp and paper industry research integrates issues from Lignocellulosic biomass and Raw material, Biorefinery.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Addition of granular activated carbon and trace elements to favor volatile fatty acid consumption during anaerobic digestion of food waste (66 citations)
  • The environmental biorefinery: state-of-the-art on the production of hydrogen and value-added biomolecules in mixed-culture fermentation (54 citations)
  • Biological pretreatments of biomass for improving biogas production: an overview from lab scale to full-scale (50 citations)

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

  • Oxygen
  • Organic chemistry
  • Ecology

His primary scientific interests are in Food science, Anaerobic digestion, Pulp and paper industry, Biomass and Biorefinery. His research in Food science intersects with topics in Geobacter sulfurreducens, Microbial population biology, Biohydrogen, Dark fermentation and Acetic acid. In his study, Fermentation is strongly linked to Microorganism, which falls under the umbrella field of Dark fermentation.

Nicolas Bernet usually deals with Anaerobic digestion and limits it to topics linked to Biogas and Methane and Food waste. His research combines Lignocellulosic biomass and Pulp and paper industry. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cellulose and Raw material.
