PhD course on Sewer Processes with focus on hydrogen sulfide modeling and management

From October 7 to 11, 2024, Co-UDlabs partners at Aalborg University, Denmark, will be organizing a 5-ECTS PhD course on processes in sewer systems. This course will offer advanced knowledge on modeling microbial and chemical processes in sewers and demonstrates how this understanding can be applied to the design, operation, and maintenance of wastewater collection systems. A major focus of the course is predicting critical impacts and managing the adverse effects of hydrogen sulfide and other toxic or noxious gases.

Content of the course:

·       Present new modeling tools for the design and operation of sewer networks

·       Establishes sewer processes as a key element in preserving water quality

·       Details the WATS sewer process model

·       Highlights the importance of aerobic, anoxic, and anaerobic processes

The course will introduce experimental methods to quantify wastewater quality in terms of biodegradability and chemical composition. During the course, the participants will get hands-on experience with setting up numerical sewer processes models and with determination of central model parameters.

Registration is free, but the number of seats is limited to 20.

Deadline to register: September 16, 2024
