Pawel Krzeminski is an environmental engineer with expertise in water and wastewater treatment and reuse, with a special interest in membrane processes. His research focuses on the topics related to advanced treatment methods, filtration technologies, removal of traditional pollutants and contaminants of emerging concern (CEC). He has over 10 years of multi-sector working experience from research, academia, consultancy and industry sectors based on the employments in Norway, Netherlands, Belgium, Poland and USA. A Marie Curie Fellowship lead to a PhD in 2013 on activated sludge filterability and functioning (design, operation, performance, energy) of the full-scale membrane bioreactors treating municipal and industrial wastewater. Lately he has been working on membrane separation processes (MBRs, MF, UF, NF, RO), removal of NOM in drinking water treatment, occurrence, fate and removal of contaminants of emerging concern during wastewater treatment and reuse, antimicrobial resistance (surveillance; ARB&ARGs quantification and removal), urban water management, and development of lab-scale custom-made tools and methods in water characterization and treatment.
 Since 2010, author/co-authored 18 peer-reviewed publications, a book chapter on innovative wastewater treatment & resource recovery technologies and >40 conference presentations. He regularly supports and supervises students and visiting researchers (10 since 2010). National representative in the Management Committee of the EU COST Actions “New and emerging challenges and opportunities in wastewater reuse (NEREUS)” and Conceiving Wastewater Treatment in 2020 - Energetic, environmental and economic challenges (Water_2020).
