The course deals with background and application of various wastewater treatment technologies. Both high-tech and low-tech systems are discussed, which are applicable in industrialized and developing countries. Anaerobic treatment systems, focusing on resource recovery are extensively discussed. Modern technologies for (extensive) nutrient removal / recovery are dealt with as well as membrane and granular sludge techniques for wastewater treatment. In brief, this course will adress the following topics:

1. Process design of wastewater treatment plants
3. Design of activated sludge systems, using sludge kinetics;
4. Anaerobic treatment fundamentals
5. Anaerobic reactor systems with emphasis on UASB
6. Environmental factors impacting anaerobic treatment
7. Post treating effluent of anaerobic reactors
8. MBR systems for wastewater treatment
2. Aerobic Granular Sludge Processes (Nereda)
9. N removal using Anammox
10. Tertiary sewage treatment
12. Water, nutrient and energy recovery for reuse
13. Sewage - treatment plant interaction
14. Decentralised sanitation / source separation
