Course Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course attempts to explain specifics of industrial wastewater. Typical processes (filtration, flotation, coagulation, precipitation, adsorption, ion exchange, stripping, membrane separation processes, chemical oxidation processes). Possibilities and restrictions of utilization of biological treatment processes. Relation between structure and biodegradability of organic compounds. Typical bioreactors and technological arrangements. Removal of specific pollutants (toxic, persistent and priority compounds) from industrial wastewater. Separation, treatment and disposal of sludge. Technological lines for industrial wastewater and sludge treatment. Specifics of treatment of wastewater from individual industrial branches. Minimization of water consumption and water reuse in industry.

 

COURSE JUSTIFICATION

To develop knowledge about the concept of industrial waste management and apply the same in the field application.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

By the end of this course, the student should be able to:

·        Analyze concentration impacts, hydrodynamic and kinetic aspects will be performed in order to specify treatment processes, reactors and treatment lines for industrial wastewater and sludge treatment.
