  • Every spring semester
  • Future effluent requirements on wastewater treatment will be more stringent regarding nutrients as well as various micropollutants. At the same time there are high expectations on space- and energy efficient solutions.
    The aim of the course is to:
    1) provide in-depth knowledge of principles and methods for mechanical, biological and chemical wastewater treatment
    2) provide tools to apply in selection and design of advanced wastewater treatment systems.
  • The design process - data evaluation and process selection
    The activated sludge process - principles and design
    Biofilm processes - principles and design
    Tertiary treatment - principles and design
    Membrane bioreactors and direct membrane filtration of raw wastewater
    Alternative nitrogen removal
    Sludge handling and anaerobic digestion - principles and design
    Removal of micropollutants
    Source sorting
    Urban infrastructure and stormwater treatment
Knowledge and Understanding
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to suggest suitable treatment technologies for a wastewater stream with given prerequisites in terms of hydraulic loading, pollutant loading and effluent requirements.
Competences and Skills
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • based on given prerequisites and for municipal wastewater be able to design activated sludge processes and biofilm processes, design tertiary treatment processes, design sludge handling systems, provide principle designs for removal and degradation of micropollutants, orally and in writing present an advanced system for wastewater treatment to other students, and critically examine scientific papers within certain fields of wastewater treatment.
Judgement and Approach
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to assess advantages and disadvantages connected to various (selected) treatment processes based on consequences on effluent water quality, foot-print, energy efficiency and handling of bio solids.
