About

The Resource Oriented Wastewater Treatment and Sanitation short course from IHE Delft Institute for Water Education introduces the participants to the concept, application and design of anaerobic reactors and a number of natural systems for wastewater treatment.

Overview

The Resource Oriented Wastewater Treatment and Sanitation short course is offered by IHE Delft Institute for Water Education.

Learning objectives

Upon completion, the participant should be able to:
  • describe the physical, chemical and microbiological processes occurring inanaerobic reactors and a number of natural systems
  • critically reflect on the current sanitation systems encountered in many urban areas and to indicate ways to improve this situation in a sustainable manner;
  • evaluate the possibilities for closing cycles of energy, water and nutrients
  • evaluate the feasibility of the application of the technologies studied in this module in urban settings in the developing world
  • carry out preliminary process design of treatment and reuse systems to assess the needs for capital, land, equipment and operation and maintenance
