How can we approach energy neutrality in our wastewater treatment plants
Professional training, Tuesday, 14. May 2019 - 8.30 to 17.00
A wastewater treatment plants must treat wastewater under all conditions, despite the changing composition of the wastewater. Wastewater treatment plant operators, therefore, have the demanding task of managing interdependent wastewater treatment processes.
For this, they need the proper equipment, knowledge, and experience. During this interactive training, the lecturer will present ways of improving the efficiency of processes and the possibility of achieving an energy neutral and a highly efficient wastewater treatment process. Participants will learn about the basic and advanced concepts of wastewater treatment processes, such as filtration, MBBR technology, deammonification process, disinfection, and removing the micro-pollutants.
