Course Description

Many of the contaminants in an industrial wastewater are actually raw materials lost from production processes whose recovery would increase process efficiency and reduce wastewater treatment costs.  Therefore, a thorough understanding of production processes and the sources of contaminants in wastewater is needed, as is knowledge of the waste characteristics and treatment options. This course begins with a review of the characterization of dissolved and particulate components of industrial wastewaters and an overview of wastewater management and treatment options.  We’ll then look at wastewater audits as a means of identifying the sources of contaminants and of quantifying the various components in an industrial wastewater.  The concept of an environmental management system will then be examined, as will the legislative and regulatory framework within which industry operates.   

Course Objectives

  • Understanding the meaning and measurement of major wastewater quality descriptors
  • Applying the components of a waste audit
  • Designing a sampling program
  • Understanding the attributes of major industrial wastewater treatment processes
  • Evaluating appropriate treatment alternatives for a given waste stream
  • Understanding the waste sources, and treatment options available in the selected industrial sectors
