Vincenzo NADDEO Curriculum

prof. Vincenzo Naddeo is Director of the Sanitary Environmental Engineering Division (SEED) at Department of Civil Engineering of the University of Salerno (Italy) where he drives research activities in the Environmental Engineering fields. He was a professor in visit at the University of Washington (2009) and Yamaguchi Uniersity (2016) as well as a visiting scientist at different foreign research institutions where he collaborated with high-ranking professors. prof. Naddeo is founded and general chair of the international conference series WaterEnergyNEXUS and coordinator of its International Scientific Advisory Board. From 2014 dr. Naddeo owns the Italian National Scientific Qualifications for full professor positions in the Academic field 08/A2 (Sanitary and Environmental Engineering).

His research focuses on advanced water/wastewater treatment, characterization and control of environmental odours and environmental impact assessment (EIA). He developed advanced biological processes for wastewater treatment and control of emerging contaminants, novel ultrasound-based technological processes for the treatment of environmental matrices (solid, liquid and gaseous) and biotechnologies for wastewater re-use with simultaneous energy production within the circular economy. In addition to the topics listed above, dr. Naddeo has published works on membrane bioreactors (MBRs), water/wastewater disinfection and disinfection by-products (DBPs), Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs), river water quality characterization, remediation of contaminated soil and marine sediments, management and treatment of the organic fraction of solid waste, strategic environmental assessment (SEA) and recently on the environmental technologies for the sustainable development of smart cities.

At the Department of Civil Engineering prof. Naddeo teaches: "Wastewater treatment plants, "Environmental Impact Assessment", "Energy and Environmental Sustainability" and "Pollution phenomena and control of environmental quality”. He is the coordinator of several international and national research projects, supervisor of PhD students and member in scientific boards of several national and international conferences where often was invited as plenary or keynote speaker.

He is Associate Editor of the Water Environmental Research (Wiley), Euro-Mediterranean Journal for Environmental Integration (Springer) and of the Earth, Frontiers for Young Minds. He presently serves on the editorial board of several ISI journals including Desalination (Elsevier), Scientific Reports (Nature Research), PeerJ (Life, Bio, Environment & Health Sciences), Frontiers in Bioengineering and Biotechnology, Water (MDPI) and Bioengineered (Taylor & Francis). Dr. Naddeo is also actively involved in a variety of scientific organizations, funding agencies, and European networks.

He is the coordinator of several European/international and national research projects, supervisor of PhD students and member in scientific boards of several national and international conferences where often was invited as plenary or keynote speaker.

He holds 4 patents on water and wastewater treatments by sonolysis and 1 patent on the novel electronic nose (e.Nose). From 2018 prof. Naddeo is CEO and co-founder of Sponge s.r.l., a Spin-Off of the University of Salerno working on Environmental Technology field. prof. Naddeo has (co-)authored over 200 refereed publications in ISI journals, congress proceedings and book volumes. He is co-editor of the book Odour Impact Assessment Handbook (John Wiley & Sons) as well as editor of several Italian books.
