Abstract(s)Due to bad experiences in the past, anaerobic treatment got a bad name in Portugal. The Lettinga Award awarded to Madalena Alves in 2004 had a definite positive impact on the Portuguese anaerobic wastewater treatment sector. It initiated a vicious circle of research & development leading to the development of innovative anaerobic technology. Up to now it has resulted in an international patent, two national innovation prizes, one PhD grant, € 75,000 in cosubsidies for the pilot plant construction a and a company start-up (AMBISYS, S.A.). The media attention attached to this Award, promoted by the communication office of the University of Minho, resulted in an improved overall image of anaerobic treatment technology in Portugal.
