The two posters that Samir Khanal co-authored and presented at the 15th International Water Association’s World Conference on Anaerobic Digestion in Beijing were both awarded outstanding poster!
The conference, which was attended by more than 1,200 participants from around the world, is an international forum discussing state-of-art anaerobic bioprocesses, including wastewater treatment.
Khanal’s posters comprised two of the only 20 awardees chosen from nearly 600 poster presentations. One poster is entitled “Effects of hyperthermophilic temperature on biomethanation efficiency and microbial community during hydrogenotrophic methanogenesis,” and the other “Automated micro-aeration system for enhancing stability of anaerobic digestion at high organic loading rate.”

Khanal, an associate professor in Molecular Biosciences and Bioengineering, also received recognition for a publication. His co-authored article “Nitrogen Transformations in Aquaponic Systems: A Review” was among the most recent top four most downloaded articles in the journal Aquacultural Engineering

As the article explains, studies on nitrogen transformations and nitrogen utilization efficiency in aquaponic systems have been very limited, despite the critical importance of N in such systems, so this paper fills an important gap. Another article Samir co-authored is “Anaerobic Digestion-Based Biorefinery for Bioenergy and Biobased Products,” appears in the Journal of Industrial Biotechnology’s list of High-Impact Articles.
