At International Conference on Emerging Contaminants (EmCon), 2016, Sidney Mermaid fellow Elena Torresi received an award for Best Student Oral Presentation for her work in the mermaid project. The committee gave this reason for the award: "This study showed the impact of biofilm thickness on the removal of several micropollutants (pharmaceuticals) in Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR). Biofilm thickness influenced both microbial activity (nitrification and micropollutant biotransformation) as well as the microbial community. Thicker biofilms were more efficient for the removal of a major number of micropollutants and presented a higher microbial diversity compared to thinner biofilms."
