Arnaud completed is Biochemistry licence in 2015 at the Claude Bernard Lyon 1 university (France).
In 2018 he completed an engineering diploma at Polytech Clermond-Ferrand (France) and a M.Sc in water and wastewater engineering at Cranfield University as part of a double degree program. He was awarded the George Solt Prize of the Institution of Chemical Engineers Water Special Interest Group for the best thesis of his promotion.
Arnaud is currently a Phd student at the University of South Wales.
Integration of Electrolytic O2 for Reduced Emissions in Wastewater Treatment Plant Operations.
With the development of hydrogen economy, a substantial amount of hydrogen will be produced via water electrolysis generating significant quantities of by-product oxygen. In order to make this technology more competitive and economically interesting, the electrolytic oxygen should be utilized as well. This study will focus on the use of the by-product oxygen by the wastewater industry to replace the current aeration systems. Oxygen demand, contribution to process efficiency, environmental and financial benefits will be evaluated.
Pure oxygen effect on biological degradation rate, sludge production, power consumption and N2O emission will be investigated via experimental trials in a laboratory scale reactor. At the same time an economical and environmental impact assessment will be conducted to evaluate the feasibility and benefits linked to the implementation of electrolysis technology in sewage treatment plant
