For professionals (Master, PhD or equivalent experience) in wastewater treatment and mathematical modelling. The course is primarily aimed at those already employed in industry who wish to up-date their theoretical knowledge and practical insight in this field.
The course will provide a comprehensive overview and a discussion platform for recent advances and trends currently under development in the context of wastewater treatment and modelling.
At the end of the course students should be able to:
i. identify the key peculiarities of each advanced wastewater treatment discussed during the course (Hybrid biofilm/activated sludge systems; membrane biorecators);
ii. identify the key operating factors affecting the pollutants removal efficiency for each of the advanced treatments;
iii. understand how to model the biological/physical processes occurring during the wastewater treatment.
Regarding this latter aspect, students will be able to:
i. formulate mathematical models of WWTPs on the basis of their scope;
ii. communicate about WWTPs using mathematical models;
iii. identify the appropriate methods to solve mathematical models and obtain valid solutions;
iv. Control WWTPs by adopting mathematical modes.
