In June 2017, Petros Dimitriou-Christidis joined ESTEE as Project Manager in Wastewater Recycling. Petros has a PhD in Civil Engineering, Environmental Division from Texas A&M University, as well as a Master’s Degree in Environmental Engineering from University of California. He has significant experience in wastewater engineering, in particular working for two top wastewater engineering consulting firms (Carollo Engineers and CH2M HILL) in the United States. Petros has four years of postdoctoral experience in wastewater micropollutants at EPFL, where he successfully designed and executed a comprehensive research project on the occurrence, fate and behavior of legacy and novel organic wastewater micro pollutants in wastewater treatment plants. More recently, Petros participated in a multi-disciplinary project, co-sponsored by Firmenich and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, on the engineering of fragrance formulations to counteract malodors from latrines and toilets. Petros is providing ESTEE with his knowledge and expertise in technological processes related to wastewater treatment and water purification. He oversees the Waste Management, Treatment & Recycling function of our Scorpius Habitat P1 prototype.
As of 1 July 2017, a Water Production Project Manager will join ESTEE to provide specific expertise on technological processes related to wastewater treatment and water purification, such as microfiltration, nanofiltration, UV treatment, ozonation, distillation, chemical treatments, charcoal filters, among others.
We are currently receiving applications for two additional positions: An Autonomous Habitat Project Manager and a Food Production Project Manager
