Dr Min Zheng received his PhD in Environmental Engineering in 2014 from Tsinghua University, China. He also completed a Bachelor of Water and Wastewater Engineering at Harbin Institute of Technology in 2008. He continued his research for two years as a postdoctoral research fellow at Tsinghua University. He was awarded by International Postdoctoral Exchange Fellowship in 2017 and then joined Australian Centre for Water and Environmental Biotechnology (ACWEB, formerly AWMC). Currently, he has been recruited as a research fellow at the ACWEB.

Research Interests

  • Microorganisms Involved in the Nitrogen-Cycling Network
  • Advanced Wastewater Treatment and Biosolids Management
  • Integrated Urban Water Management: Multiple Reuse of Chemicals
  • Sewer Corrosion control

Research Impacts

His current research focuses on innovative technologies for resource recovery from wastewater, particularly (i) maximal energy recovery from wastewater, and (ii) conversion of waste sludge to a safe product for agricultural application. He specializes in the laboratory and pilot-scale investigation and demonstration of these next-generation wastewater/sludge treatment technologies. His research goal has been to deliver practical solutions to significant industry problems through integrating fundamental science and applied engineering.
