Interview with Dr. Pascale Champagne, Ph.D., P.Eng., D.WR

Research Interests

Solid waste management; minimizing the impact of municipal, agricultural and industrial activities on surface water and groundwater contamination. Specifically: the extraction of commodity chemicals from livestock manure, municipal and industrial sludges, as well as other organic residues; composting and biostabilization of municipal, agricultural and industrial biosolids. Passive treatment of municipal and industrial wastewaters and leachates. Specific areas of interest: acid mine drainage (AMD) mitigation using passive strategies including anoxic limestone drains (ALD), contained biological systems (bioreactors), biosorption and wetland systems; biofilter and biosorbent applications in municipal and industrial wastewater treatment; characterization of physical, chemical and biological removal mechanisms; effects of low temperature and seasonal variability on pasive system performance; modelling flow and contaminant transport through passive systems.
