M5: 'Exercises and cases - anaerobic water treatment'

M5: 'Exercises and cases - anaerobic water treatment' 

This module focuses on the analytical understanding of the participants and their ability to calculate and interpret basic process parameters of an anaerobic purification process. In addition to a number of standard exercises, some cases are also worked out. If desired, participants can also bring their own case and these will be elaborated in group.

Target group

  • Operators, process managers and laboratory staff involved in the monitoring of biological wastewater treatment systems.
  • Environmental managers who need a good overview of the technical possibilities and bottlenecks of biological wastewater treatment systems.


It is not possible to take part in this training without a thorough prior knowledge of the biological (anaerobic) water treatment process.

The modules M1 'Basic water chemistry: applications to wastewater' and M4 'Basic principles of anaerobic water treatment' are considered necessary.
