Welcome to the Dhar Lab @ UAlberta 

We are an environmental engineering research group at the University of Alberta, led by Dr. Bipro Dhar.  We are affiliated with the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Our research group combines principles of environmental biotechnology, microbial electrochemistry, and physicochemical processes to develop advanced technologies for organic waste and high-strength wastewater treatment, with a focus on bioenergy and value-added resources recovery. Our key areas of expertise include anaerobic digestion, microbial electrochemical technologies, and microbial dark fermentation.
