Biological Wastewater Treatment: Principles, Modelling and Design



This course seeks to address the quantity, complexity, and diversity of the developments in the wastewater treatment profession, particularly in developing countries where access is not readily available to advanced-level courses in wastewater treatment. 

Course Objectives:

At the end of this course the participants will be able to:

  • Describe the prime objective of wastewater treatment and sanitation.
  • Determine the stoichiometric and kinetic parameters of the different metabolic processes of the microorganisms involved during the biological wastewater treatment process
  • Critically determine and analyze quantity and quality characteristics of wastewaters
  • Design and critically assess different wastewater treatment systems and configurations performing biological organic matter, nitrogen as well as phosphorus removal.
  • Design and critically evaluate different disinfection treatments
  • Assess and describe through mathematical expressions the different processes occurring during wastewater treatment as well as effects caused by inhibitory compounds
  • Design and assess the operation of a biofilm system for wastewater treatment
