Course overview

To gain an understanding of the design principles, practice and operational experience of biological treatment processes.

Course description

This course will cover:

Fundamentals of biologically-based processes in the water industry including stoichiometry, kinetics and biochemistry.

Fixed film processes including biofilm principles and the design and operation of trickling filters, biological aerated filters (BAFs), submerged aeration filters (SAFs), rotating biological contactors (RBCs) and moving bed biofilm reactors (MBBRs).

Suspended growth processes including activated sludge microbiology and activated sludge design and operation, including sequencing batch reactors (SBRs) and high rate biological processes – membrane bioreactors (MBRs).

Aerobic and anaerobic processes compared and contrasted. High rate anaerobic process and municipal sludge anaerobic digestion fundamentals and practice
biological nutrient removal fundamentals and practice.

Denitrification and enhanced biological phosphate removal.

On successful completion of this course the delegate will be able to:

Demonstrate a broad understanding of the capabilities of aerobic and anaerobic biological processes.
Appreciate the strengths and weaknesses of biological processing with reference to performance criteria and plant configuration.

Select the appropriate biological process to undertake a specific treatment objective, and have some knowledge of practical design considerations.

Execute and asses laboratory work examining respirometry (FT).
