Water & Waste Water Treatment Course

Course Description


Water is a very valuable and vital commodity, althouhg its not often thought to be. We consume water, waste it, discard it, pollute it, poison it and relentlessly modify the hydrological cycles with total disregard to the consequences. Too many people, too little water, water in the wrong place and in wrong amount. With passage of time potable water will become more and more valuable. In water supply systems, the historical or traditional approach has been to control turbidity, iron and manganese, taste and odor, color and coliforms. New regulations provided new focus thus a paradigm shift. Today the traditional approach is no longer sufficient. Providing acceptable water has become more sophisticated and costly. To meet the requirements of the new paradigm, a systems approach must be employed. In the systems approach, all components are interrelated. What affects one impacts the other.This course is intended to train operators in the latest technology and operational techniques in water and waste water treatment plant.
Who Should attend?  

   People who are making day to day decisions regarding operation, design, maintenance, and economics of process industry plants.      • An engineer or chemist who must troubleshoot and solve distillation problems in a plant, an engineering office or laboratory.   • Technical Engineers, Operating Engineers, Process Support Personnel, Chemist, and Managers    

• Engineering graduates/technologists who will be using simulation software in their daily work.    

• Technical Process engineers doing process design and optimization projects and studies that need who need advanced skills for more complex modeling tasks.     

• Plant Operation Support Engineers checking plant performance under different operating conditions, and who are involved in design of new facilities or revamps of existing facilities.   

• R&D engineers and researchers using process simulators for process synthesis, upgrade or modifications.    

• Ideal for veterans and those with only a few years of experience who want to review or broaden their understanding of process safety.  

• Other professionals who desire a better understanding of the subject matter.
