This course will expand on the general theory and process control content introduced in the EWMCE course Biological Nutrient Removal. This new course will introduce concepts of laboratory analysis of solids, settleability, and microbiology, and tie these parameters to the performance of a BNR system. Participants will walk away from this course able to discuss troubleshooting of commonly observed process problems in relation to the health and state of the BNR system as indicated through laboratory analysis of samples.

Target Audience:

  • Wastewater Treatment Operators of all Levels working with BNR systems
  • EITs
  • Process Engineers

Learning Objectives

  • Describe key operating parameters and process control strategies for BNR 
  • Discuss theoretical concepts of laboratory analysis of activated sludge
  • Describe the importance of identification and abundance analysis of general microbiota, and in particular, filaments 
  • Tie concepts of process control to the health/state of activated sludge systems as indicated through laboratory analysis of samples
  • Identify commonly observed problems in a BNR system
  • Discuss issues of process control and troubleshooting in general and participants' own wastewater treatment systems
