Summary

This course on applied wastewater treatment focuses on engineering and scientific aspects to achieve high effluent water quality and to handle wastes and air emissions generated in wastewater treatment plants.

Content

Organic micropollutant removal (major topic of course)

Biological treatment, ozonation, activated carbon, combined and other processes, sand filtration, existing and planned installations in Switzerland

 

Treatment of wastewater solids (major topic of course)

Sludge characterisation, thickening/stabilisation/dewatering and drying of sludge, energy and nutrient recovery, incineration and land application

 

Air emission control

Types of emissions, chemical and biological treatment methods, reduction of greenhouse gases

 

Disinfection of wastewater

Biological treatment, sedimentation, UV-disinfection, disinfection using oxidants, filtration techniques

 

Reuse of wastewater

Effluent requirements (agriculture, groundwater recharge, potable reuse), sociological aspects

Keywords

organic micropollutants removal, sludge treatment, air emission control, nutrient and energy recovery, disinfection of wastewater, reuse of wastewater, engineering
