Advanced Biological Wastewater Treatment: Principles, Modelling and Design

Overview:

Introduction:

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
