Keynote: Hydrol Current Res
Hydrodynamic induced cavitation generates imploding cavitation bubbles which can lead to degradation or even mineralisation of water constituents without addition of any chemicals. This technology overcomes the problems of ultrasound irradiation by the local production of a cavitation cloud close to the sonotrodes.
Andreas Schmid (Ph.D. in Biochemical Engineering - Environmental Engineering), now is Full Professor in water and wastewater treatment at the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Hof, Germany. More than 20 years of working experiences in industry built the fundament to derive applied sciences at his current position. Prof.Schmid got several awards for his research in the water and wastewater sector and holds a couple of national and international patents in environmental techniques. At present his research focus concentrates on cavitation technologies and relating applications in environmental engineering - especially elimination of industrial- and micro-pollutants.
