Anaerobic Wastewater Treatment

IHE Delft Institute for Water Education

Certificate / Diploma Short course Delft

Course description

Qualification Certificate
Field of study Agriculture and environment
Course summary This is a specialist course fitting within biological wastewater treatment, designed for sanitary/civil and environmental engineers interested in anaerobic treatment of domestic/industrial wastewater.
Course description Anaerobic treatment of industrial and domestic wastewater is considered a grown-up and cost effective technology. Anaerobic wastewater treatment (AnWT) requires none or very little energy for operational purposes while producing methane. Treatment of domestic wastewaters is so far restricted to countries with warm climates, a region that often lacks appropriate wastewater treatment systems. A proper understanding of AnWT and related technologies is a prerequisite for implementation and further spreading of environmental protection technologies that are also focusing on resource preservation. Knowledge on cost effective treatment systems for sanitary wastewaters, including domestic sewage, will contribute to setting up adequate sanitation solutions worldwide. After completion of the course, the participants will have a proper understanding of Anaerobic wastewater treatment and technologies; know how to calculate on COD balances; be able to design a basic UASB reactor; know how anaerobic reactor effluent can be treated; be introduced to innovations in anaerobic wastewater treatment such as anaerobic MBRs.
Study subjects  Anaerobic reactor technology  Basic calculations, working with COD balancing, bio-essays  Microbiology and biochemistry of anaerobic conversions  UASB: principles, design, start-up, affecting factors  Treatment of anaerobic reactor effluent  Anaerobic membrane bioreactors  Case studies
Course objectives After completion of the course, the participants will:  have a proper understanding of Anaerobic wastewater treatment (AnWT) and technologies making use of anaerobic treatment  know how to calculate on COD balances  be able to design a basic UASB reactor  know how anaerobic reactor effluent can be treated  be introduced to innovations in anaerobic wastewater treatment such as anaerobic MBRs
