Michal Green, Professor at the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Technion, Haifa Israel. 

Michal Green earned her master's and doctoral degrees in Civil Engineering at the Technion, followed by a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of California, Berkeley and Davis. She returned to the Technion in 1983 first as a research associate, and later as a faculty member at the Faculty of Agricultural Engineering and at the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
Currently Prof. Green is dean of students. Other posts at the Technion have included: deputy dean of research and graduate studies; head of the interfaculty program for undergraduate studies in environmental engineering; head of the committee for undergraduate studies in environmental, water, and agricultural engineering at the CEE Faculty; and head of the Center for Soil, Water, and Environment.


Prof. Green has authored and/or co-authored more than 70 publications in leading journals, books, and encyclopedias and supervised more than 30 graduate students.


Major Research Activities

Michal Green specializes in water and wastewater treatment. Together with her research group and students, advanced biological and chemical processes for the water pollution abatement and wastewater reuse are investigated. Prof. Green's group is currently involved in several research projects including the following:

Denitrification of brines

Storage driven denitrification
Nitrification at low pH.
Ammonia removal from poultry houses

Treatment of  piggery wastes

Chemically enhanced primary treatment (CEPT)
Vertical flow constructed wetlands for Wastewater Treatment.
Appropriate Technology for Wastewater Treatment and Reuse in Rural Middle East Areas.

Studies: National Environmental Priorities

One of the functions of the Samuel Neaman Institute is to bridge the gap between academia, industry and decision-makers by making applicable, up-to-date information and research-based knowledge accessible to state institutions. The documents of national priorities compiled at the Shmuel Ne'eman Institute deal with a variety of issues that are important to raise on the public agenda.
