Our last lecture will be related to Biorefineries and how such a concept can transform wastewater treatment systems in plants producing valuable compounds. The concepts of anaerobic digestion applied to the treatment of effluents will be revised and extended to concepts of anaerobic waste processing. In this way, routes for producing high added value bioproducts through the anaerobic digestion of effluents will be explored. Attention will be given to the coupling of anaerobic digestion and the sugarcane alcohol biorefinery by processing by-products from first and second-generation ethanol production.


Dr. Lucas Tadeu Fuess is an Environmental Engineer (2006-2010) and Master in Geosciences and Environment (2011-2013; FAPESP) by the Institute of Geosciences and Exact Sciences of the São Paulo State University "Júlio de Mesquita Filho" (IGCE/Unesp). He has a Ph.D. in Sciences (Hydraulic Engineering and Sanitation) (2013-2017; FAPESP), from the São Carlos School of Engineering of the University of São Paulo (EESC/USP), having developed part of the thesis at the National Laboratory for Bioethanol Science and Technology (CTBE/CNPEM). He was a post-doctoral researcher linked to the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Polytechnic School of the University of São Paulo (POLI/USP) (2017-2021; FAPESP). He works in Sanitary and Environmental Engineering, with an emphasis on controlling environmental pollution through the application of biological treatment processes. In particular, he has experience in the application of anaerobic digestion in the processing of agro-industrial effluents aiming at the recovery of bioenergy through hydrogen (acidogenic processes) and methane (methanogenic processes) as well as the production of soluble metabolites (organic acids and solvents) with high-value aggregate. In a broader context, he works on applying the biorefinery concept to the management of waste streams from industrial processes, seeking to add value from the recovery of bioenergy and bioproducts.
