About the course

This course deals with advanced wastewater treatment and water reuse.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Apply and obtain an advanced knowledge on industrial wastewater
  • Understand and apply principles of waste treatment which will conserve wastewater and produce a high quality water which is enable to reuse
  • Discuss the type of wastewater plant, limits and problems as well as water budget and water use profile
  • Collect accurate data and apply flow measurement and chemical test
  • Recognize the modeling of wastewater treatment process and the industrial processes
  • Determine and interpret the modeling data and application in plants
