Merle de Kreuk - Square

"With online education we can share knowledge anywhere in the world and learn from the situations in sewage treatment abroad. Moreover, the online material gives the opportunity for on-campus courses to flip the classroom and create more time for discussion, exercises and formative assessment in class."

Merle de Kreuk is a Professor of Environmental Technology in the Water Management Department of the Delft University of Technology. Her research focus is on (municipal and industrial) wastewater treatment systems and anaerobic digestion processes.

Merle is one of the co-founders of the aerobic granular sludge technology.

research interest

Her main research topics are hydrolysis processes in anaerobic treatment and granule formation and deterioration.
