The focus of this course is on management of industrial wastewater including topics such as cleaner production, industrial water management, toxicity, physical chemical processes, anaerobic industrial wastewater treatment, and sludge management and treatment.
Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a Course Certificate issued by IHE Delft.
