Wastewater Treatment, Water Recovery and Re-Use

<< Back to Course Catalogue

After participating in the seminar, you will be able to:

  • Characterize a wastewater based on flow and contaminant parameters
  • Recognize the types of wastewater contaminants, the conventional processes used to remove them, and the types of treatment equipment required for their removal
  • Apply the principles and practices of conventional wastewater treatment systems to the removal of suspended solids and colloids, organic matter, nitrogen, and phosphorus
  • Select knowledgeably advanced wastewater treatment processes such as filtration, reverse osmosis, ion exchange or carbon adsorption
  • Audit your wastewater process and industrial water recovery and water re-use applications

Water recovery and reuse is economical for industries and is an environmentally sound practice. The purpose of this seminar is to provide participants with an understanding of the principles and practices of wastewater treatment, water recovery and reuse.

The seminar covers wastewater characterization, treatments and using conventional technologies such as biological and phys-chem treatments, as well as advanced treatment technologies such as filtration and membrane processes, ion exchange and carbon adsorption processes. The audit process, from both the manufacturing and the waste treatment process points of view, will also be discussed.
