The Process and Water Quality Specialists
Fernanda Bacaro has a B.S. in Environmental Engineering from the Sao Paulo State University, Brazil and a M.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Her master’s thesis was focused on alternative potable reuse treatment processes such as ozone and biofiltration. She operated a pilot-scale ozone biofiltration system to assess its feasibility towards bulk organic matter removal and disinfection by-products (NDMA specifically) mitigation, including upon final chloramination. Her work also included the use of microbiology and molecular biology techniques to understand NDMA abatement during biofiltration. At Trussell Tech, Ms. Bacaro performs several laboratory analyses for water quality, simulates bench- and small-scale treatment processes, and is currently working with advanced treatment processes for potable reuse.
