M1: 'Basic water chemistry: wastewater applications'

M1: 'Basic water chemistry: wastewater applications' 

In principle, water purification is always based on chemical, physicochemical and biochemical processes. It is therefore obvious that a basic knowledge of chemistry is necessary for a good understanding of these techniques. In the course attention is paid to basic chemical/physical parameters that are frequently used in water purification.


Target group
Operators and process managers who would like to refine or refresh their knowledge of chemistry.


The module 'Basic chemistry of water: applications on wastewater' is designed for people with little or no previous chemical knowledge.



  • Introduction to the basics of wastewater treatment 
  • Units often used in chemistry
  • Calculating and converting units
  • Interpretation of results (SS, VSS, DM, oDM)
  • Chemical background of the chemical oxygen consumption parameter (COD)



  • Presentations (theory)
  • Exercises (collective)



  • Half-day module (combinable with our other modules)
  • Maximum number of participants: 15



€ 350 (excl. 21% VAT) for half a day
