Research activity: 
Although the first publications concern the synthesis of ferromagnetic nanoparticles for wastewater treatment and the study of control systems for membrane plants, current research moves away from these issues, mainly focusing on the production of polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA). In this context, a mixed microbial consortium is used, compared to pure cultures used on an industrial level. The research also concerns the production of volatile fatty acids, (VFA) through fermentation and electro-fermentation processes, also exploiting mixed microbial cultures. It is important to underline how the two lines of research are not independent but correlated, since the VFA produced by fermentation can be used as a carbon source for the storage polymer bacteria. The supervisor of this research is the Prof. Marianna Villano.
