Advanced Oxidation Process Modeling

IWA Water treatment modeling

Target Audience

Utility managers and technologists, consultants, WRRF and drinking water
plant designers, as well as academics and modellers with interest in
disinfection and advanced oxidation of water and wastewater.


This is the second in a two-part webinar series where we will illustrate and
discuss the fundamentals behind disinfection and advanced oxidation
processes (applied water and wastewater treatment).

Subsequently, speakers will present established as well as emerging
modelling methodologies, and the role such methodologies could play in
rationale design and control. Specifically, the webinar will be structured to
cover the following topics:

1. Microbial inactivation and advanced oxidation kinetic models
2. Integrated design framework for advanced process design and
3. Designing under uncertainty: probabilistic frameworks

Learning Objectives

Participants will learn about:
● Main modelling methodologies for disinfection & advanced oxidation
process design, optimization and scale-up
● Established integrated modelling frameworks for designing and
optimizing disinfection & advanced oxidation processes for multiple
treatment objectives
● Emerging modelling methodologies to assess disinfection &
advanced oxidation processes under water quality variability and
● Advanced tools are available to support disinfection & advanced
oxidation process design
● When multiple design objectives are to be met, process dynamics
must be taken into account and appropriately controlled;
● Risk-based methodologies are being developed in order to move
from a deterministic to a probabilistic integrated disinfection and/or
AOPs design framework
