Various pilot-scale units have been constructed by students (undergraduate, postgraduate, PhD) and PostDoc staff under the frame of teaching and research projects.
Sludge Treatment Wetlands for municipal sludge dewatering
Vertical Flow Constructed Wetlands for municipal wastewater treatment
Horizontal Subsurface Flow Constructed Wetlands for landfill leachate treatment
Anaerobic reactor (UASB type) of laboratory-scale
Anaerobic reactor (UASB type) of semi-industrial-scale
Membrane Bioreactor (ΜΒR), ZW-10 type, semi-industrial-scale: the unit consists in an ultrafiltration system ZW-10 type of the company ZENON ENVIRONMENTAL Inc. The system can be used as a filtration unit and with some modifications as MBR system.
Reverse osmosis unit: this experimental device is a product of the company GE OSMONICS (model RO-E2-0375-DLX5). It includes a membrane made of Desal AG2521TF. The system includes a pre-treatment unit to protect the membranes and to ensure a longer useful life time.
Electrolytic oxidation unit of toxic wastewater
Coagulation unit: comprises a Jar Test F.6/S device of VELP SCIENTIFICA. It includes 6 different glass containers each of 2 L volume, for simultaneous stirring.
Vertical Flow Constructed Wetland unit of semi-industrial scale with 2 parallel lines. One line had plants (Phragmites australis) and the other not, in order to study the evapotranspiration of the system
Rotating Pyrolytic Reactor for Combustion and Evaporation of Solid Waste
Laboratory scale pyrolysis oven with nitrogen supply capability
