Biological wastewater treatment and anaerobic digestion: theory, design and practice - 24-27 June 2019

Course lecturer: Dr Davide Dionisi, School of Engineering, University of Aberdeen

The University of Aberdeen is delighted to offer this CPD Course which is aimed at professionals and PhD students working in the areas of biological wastewater treatment and anaerobic digestion. The course describes how to optimise and design biological wastewater treatment and anaerobic digestion processes in order to maximise treatment efficiency while minimising the capital and operating costs. The course starts from the fundamental of biological wastewater treatment, covers kinetics and stoichiometry of biological reactions and shows step-by-step how to develop and solve the mass balances and design equations. The main processes used in the industry are described and the corresponding design equations are developed. The course includes numerical examples and design problems, where the students will be able to work hands-on and apply the theory learnt in the lectures.
