Professor from University of Science and Technology of China Visits IHB


 Professor YU Hanqing from University of Science and Technology of China was invited to IHB on November 8, 2019, 

On November 8, 2019, Professor YU Hanqing from University of Science and Technology of China was invited to Institute of Hydrobiology (IHB) of Chinese Academy of Sciences for academic exchange. During his visit, he gave an academic lecture on "aerobic microbial particles in wastewater treatment" for IHB researchers and graduate students.   

In the activated sludge process, the particles formed by self-flocculation of microorganisms can significantly improve the treatment efficiency and reduce the operating cost. Starting from the development course of aerobic microbial particles, Prof. Yu gradually introduced the formation process of aerobic microorganisms, basic characteristics, the ability of degradation of pollutants, and the research of pollutants in the aerobic microbial particles. Based on the transformation law, Yu also introduced studies by creating a mathematical model to realize interaction between aerobic microbial particles of precise control. In the process of the formation of aerobic microbial particles, Yu not only introduced the formation mechanism of aerobic microbial particles, but also elaborated the four stages of particle formation.    

The establishment of a new method for the culture of aerobic microorganism particles and the innovation of a series of new methods to characterize the characteristics of microbial particles were introduced.   

At last, Yu Shared his own research ideas and methods, and introduced the related research work of the research group as well as the current main research directions.   

YU Hanqing is a professor working at the College of Chemistry and Materials at University of Science and Technology of China. He is a doctoral supervisor, winners of both National Outstanding Youth Fund and Changjiang Scholar Distinguished Professor launched by the Ministry of Education. In 2014, he won the second prize of the National Natural Science Award (ranking the first). He has published more than 400 SCI papers as the communication/first author, with over 10,000 SCI citations and H factor 78.
