Comprehensive Aerobic Wastewater Treatment Training: 
Theory, Exercises, and Analytical Understanding

Discover the fundamental principles of aerobic wastewater treatment and gain a solid understanding of chemical, physicochemical, and biochemical processes. This module emphasises the importance of chemistry knowledge in comprehending water purification techniques.

Explore the essential chemical, biological and physical parameters commonly utilised in water treatment, enhancing your expertise in this field. Delve into the theoretical aspects, which not only elucidate the core principles of aerobic wastewater treatment but also provide practical insights into monitoring, process optimisation, and effective management of potential incidents.

Develop your analytical skills and proficiency in calculating and interpreting basic process parameters. Engage in a series of standard exercises and in interactive discussions about real-life case studies. To immediately apply the theory in a practical setting, participants have the option to join a site visit on the afternoon of day 2. 

This year, we have included a practical laboratory component in our training. We ask participants to bring their own wastewater samples and cases for group analysis and exploration during a practice session in our in-house lab

Join us for this dynamic training experience, where theory meets practice, enabling you to excel in aerobic wastewater treatment.
