Fee£295 plus VAT for 1-person, (includes slides presented).  20% discount on total price if all three courses booked at the same time: Activated Sludge & Anaerobic Digestion courses

Course Overview

BOD, COD, ammonia, phosphorus, population equivalence, consents to discharge, physical, chemical, biological treatment.  These and more concepts form the foundation to evaluating wastewater treatment processes.  You will leave this course understanding what these and more are and how they are applied to plant operation and optimisation.

Course Aim

This course will provide attendees with an understanding of the components of wastewater, how these relate to consents to discharge and the different stages of treatment in a wastewater treatment plant.  It will cover examples in domestic and industrial applications (e.g. food and beverage) and expected performance based upon real world data.  Key performance indicators along with common operational challenges and solutions are covered, along with numerous proprietary technologies.

Learning is delivered through a combination of lectures, case studies and worked examples.

Course Programme

  • What is wastewater? Tests used to characterise and quantify wastewater. Differences between domestic and industrial wastewaters
  • Consent limits and future drivers for investment
  • Flow and load – terminology (e.g. population equivalence, dry weather flow), how to undertake a flow and composition study, relationships in the data and what they mean
  • The wastewater treatment works:
    Part 1 – Preliminary & primary treatment – (Screens, grit removal, primary sedimentation)
    Part 2 – Secondary biological treatment – (Activated sludge, SBR, MBR, MBBR, trickling filters)
    Part 3 – Tertiary treatment (solids and phosphorus removal, disinfection)

Optional extra

  • 1-2-1 follow up with trainer Matthew Smyth to reinforce learning at £205 plus VAT (2 hours).
