Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Students acquire basic knowledge of the assessment of wastewater pollution and the treatment process. They acquaint with the principles of modeling of bioreactors used in wastewater treatment technology. They acquire a knowledge of the technological lines configuration of municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants - primary, secondary and tertiary treatment, mechanical treatment, settling, activation process and secondary clarification, anaerobic pretreatment and treatment of wasted sludge, chemical and physicochemical treatment methods.
Course contents:
Wastewater classification from various points of view. Assessment of wastewater pollution.
Equipment of wastewater treatment plants. The technological lines of wastewater treatment and sludge disposal. Mechanical, chemical and biological stage of wastewater treatment.
Basis of biomass growth kinetics and modeling of bioreactors.
Pretreatment and primary stage of wastewater treatment - mechanical separators, sedimentation and flotation, settling tank.
The secondary stage of wastewater treatment - activation and secondary settling tank, the basic parameters of activation, the types of aerobic bioreactors, nitrification and denitrification, phosphorus removal.
The tertiary stage of wastewater treatment - after-treatment of wastewater.
Anaerobic processes - the types of anaerobic bioreactors. Treatment of sewage sludge.
Treatment of industrial wastewater. Physicochemical and chemical treatment processes.
