Stamatelatou Aikaterini

Rank: Assistant professor

Laboratory: Laboratory of Wastewater Management and Treatment Technologies

Field of expertise: Environmental Technology (act of employment 479/8-6-2010)

Education: graduated from the department of Chemical Engineering, University of Patras, PhD in Chemical Engineering

Short description of scientific interests: experimental and theoretical study (through laboratory prototypes and mathematical models respectively) of the anaerobic digestion process for the treatment and valorisation of wastes and biomass so that energy carriers (such as methane and hydrogen) as well as other high added value compounds can be produced.

Teaching of undergraduate courses:
Physical unit processes (4thsemester)
Chemical and biochemical unit processes (5thsemester)
Anaerobic processes for waste and biomass valorization (9th semester)

Selected projects:
COSTTD1203 "Food waste valorisation for sustainable chemicals, materials & fuels (EUBis): ""
COSTES1202: "ConceivingWastewaterTreatmentin 2020 - Energetic, environmentalandeconomicchallenges (Water_2020)" " (Processintegration)"
Biofuel production through bioprocesses , code 80706. Funded by ETAA (2010-2013).
"Wastevalorisationforenergyproduction", code 81262. Funded by ETAA (2013-2015), .
