|The course is an introductory lesson to wastewater treatment processes and management.
The subject matter of the course aims at the introduction of students to the wastewater quality characteristics and to processes applied in wastewater treatment. The aim of the course is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the methods required for sewage treatment and to realize the importance of sewage treatment in environmental protection, and the evolution of sewage treatment and management in a distinct scientific field / profession.
At the end of this course the student should be able to:
· Present the main wastewater characteristics, and the methods for their determination.
· Know the steps for preliminary and primary wastewater treatment.
· Know the basic principles of the microbial metabolism applied in wastewater treatment processes.
· Know the methods for the biological wastewater treatment for organic and nutrient removal.
· Know the methods for the sludge treatment and disposal.
· Assess the methods for the wastewater disinfection.
