AQUAFocus Diseño de Estaciones Depuradoras de Aguas Residuales

As water is the driving force for the progress of societies, it is of vital importance to ensuring the availability of facilities capable of assimilating the impact of industrialization and other stress factors on the quality of the resource.

Today, wastewater is considered a source of resources: water for reuse, organic matter for biogas and energy or nutrients for fertilizer. The use of these resources is nowadays a focal point of wastewater treatment plants.

AQUAFocus participants in the Design of Wastewater Treatment Plants will acquire a complete knowledge about wastewater treatment, methodology and techniques for sizing of all treatment line processes and emerging technologies for the management of water, sludge and biogas lines.

GET READY FOR:

The content of the program is particularly suitable for those professionals who are interested in deepening their knowledge of the design and sizing of wastewater treatment plants based on the characteristics of the wastewater and the parameters that will define the treatment to be designed.

The design of each of the processes that make up the treatment process, the possibilities associated with the recovery of by-products (biogas, energy, nutrients, sludge, etc.) and, finally, the strategies for the control and treatment of emerging pollutants are discussed in depth.

In view of the nature of water as an engine for the progress of societies, it is of vital importance to ensuring the availability of facilities capable of assimilating the impact of industrialization and other stress factors on the quality of the resource.

Content

CREDITS

This credit introduces wastewater treatment starting from its historical evolution and legal framework. It then defines the objectives of wastewater treatment, analyzes the characteristics of wastewater and the parameters to define the flow to be treated, and finally describes the main wastewater treatment processes, providing the necessary knowledge for their selection.

This credit presents the methodologies and techniques for the sizing of all the processes that make up the water treatment line of a wastewater treatment plant.

The parameters that influence the design of each of the processes will be discussed, from pretreatment and primary and secondary treatment, with an in-depth look at biofilm processes, to disinfection.

Treatments with natural systems will also be presented.

This credit presents methodologies and techniques for the sizing of all the processes that make up the sludge treatment line of a wastewater treatment plant. The guidelines necessary to identify when it is advisable to anaerobically digest the sludge, as well as the techniques for sizing the gas line when anaerobically digesting the WWTP sludge, are indicated.

Additionally, the credit provides the necessary knowledge to quantify the energy use by obtaining electrical energy from the calorific value of the biogas produced in anaerobic digestion.

Finally, guidelines are also provided for sizing the deodorization process to avoid the appearance of unbreathable atmospheres in the WWTP.

This credit presents the emerging technologies in the field of water and sludge treatment.
The WWTP will be presented as a source of resources (fertilizers, energy, etc.) and its possible market, going from the concept of a WWTP as an energy consumer to a resource generator.

Specifically, the credit focuses on by-product recovery (biogas, energy, nutrients, sludge, etc.), control strategies and treatment of emerging contaminants.
