16. Anaerobic Wastewater Treatment

The course entails definition and environmental benefits of anaerobic wastewater treatment processes, microbiology of anaerobic conversions (e.g. hydrolysis, acidogenesis, acetogenesis, methanogenesis), prediction of methane production, impacts of alternative electron acceptors, working with COD balances, immobilization and sludge granulation etc. You will also get insight in various anaerobic reactor systems, and in particular upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactors, and anaerobic process kinetics. Anaerobic treatment of domestic and municipal sewage and of black water in new sanitation systems is also part of the course. Finally you will test and expand your knowledge by studying examples and exercises and you will enjoy variety of international case studies especially prepared for this course.

Welcome by Prof. Thiago Bressani and Em. Prof. Carlos Chernicharo
