There is an ample need for hands on practice of mathematical modelling of Activated Sludge plants.

The two day modelling course provides detailed instruction on mathematical models, their structure and use in practice such as design, operation and control in activated sludge plants, and ample hands-on opportunity to use these models in a class-room setting. The learner will gain an understanding of structure of the IWA Activated Sludge Models (ASMs) and get a hands-on opportunity to use these models.
