Smart Water Activated Sludge course


Effluent quality requirements for sewage treatment are becoming increasingly more stringent. Many sewage treatment plants in Australia are being, or will be in the near future, upgraded to biological nutrient removal. The level of training and understanding for effective operation of these systems within the industry is currently limiting. A specialist training course has therefore been designed for mangers, operators and designers of BNR systems.

This is a University accredited course aimed at people working in the wastewater industry as operators, engineers, scientists or managers, who wish to have a working knowledge or troubleshooting and process optimisation of activated sludge and biological nutrient removal systems. The course is unique in that it provides fundamental knowledge of the interaction between biochemical, microbiological and engineering design and operational aspects of the process.
