Wastewater Treatment

The Wastewater Treatment pathway offers students a broad framework to increase their knowledge of a range of advanced Wastewater technologies. It covers the scientific perspective of treatment principles; the environmental aspects of the discipline; and the management of waste using specific technologies, including activated sludge, dewatering and sludge disposal. It concludes with an examination of ways the energy and carbon agenda will affect the industry, in particular biomass and anaerobic digestion.
