Jie Deng supervised by Henrik Rasmus Andersen, Barth F. Smets & Elena Torresi
Arnaud Jéglot supervised by Irini Angelidaki, Ioannis Fotidis, Miao Yan & Hailin Tian

Arnaud Jéglot was nominated for his master thesis on how to establish optimal cultivation methods for high ammonia-tolerant methanogenic consortia.  As ammonia inhibition is the main cause of under-performance of biogas plants his work constitutes an important step towards more efficient biogas production.

Jie Deng was nominated for her master thesis on how biological post-treatment of wastewater can be used to secure micro pollutants removal based on a new operational strategy of moving bed biofilm reactors (MBBR) technology.  Her work demonstrates how micro pollutants which constitute contaminants of emerging concern in municipal wastewater may efficiently be degraded.

Since 1998, the annual Trophées Performance awards by the Veolia Group have recognized the most innovative work produced by engineering and business students in their final year of studies covering subjects related to the business of the Veolia Group: Energy, Waste Management and Water.

With over 168,800 employees worldwide, the Veolia Group designs and provides water, waste and energy management solutions that contribute to the sustainable development of communities and industries. Through its three complementary business activities, Veolia helps to develop access to resources, preserve available resources, and to replenish them.
