This course introduces biological principles used in the design and operation of biological wastewater treatment plants. Water scarcity is one of the most critical challenges in human society. Billions of people in the world have poor access to clean water and such a situation is getting worse with rapid [...]
This course introduces modern biotechnologies for wastewater treatment. Modern biotechnologies have been widely used in clinical diagnosis, food production, and the pharmaceutical industry. Their applications in wastewater treatment have greatly improved the accuracy and efficiency of characterizing biological systems in biological wastewater treatment plants and the natural [...]
This course introduces nutrient removal principles used in biological wastewater treatment plants. Nutrients, especially nitrogen and phosphorus, are essential for all living organisms. However, excess amounts of nutrients in wastewater often result in eutrophication that may deplete oxygen, promote harmful algal bloom, and even create dead zone for aquatic [...]
