Bill Clarke has 20 years of experience as researcher in bioengineering processes for solid organic waste. He has been one of the pioneers in intensive landfill based treatment processes, publishing extensively on leach-bed technology and the solubilisation of solid organic waste. His research group was one of the first to characterise the microbial colonisation and degradation processes for solid organic waste. More recently, his research has broadened to more intensive and higher value adding processes including H2 production and on-site utilisation of organic waste for energy production and biological nutrient removal.
