Biological water treatment

Biological treatment systems are by far the most commonly used wastewater treatment technology. The nature of the processes, the strict requirements on effluent and the increasing focus on effluent reuse demand good process monitoring.

This practical 3-day training provides all the tools needed to monitor and manage biological treatment processes. The training focuses on everyone who is either directly or indirectly involved in these processes on a daily basis.

This training is currently only available in Dutch.

Physicochemical treatment

This training relates to physicochemical wastewater treatment. It is hands-on and focuses on all professionals involved in monitoring physicochemical treatment processes.

During this two-day training we pay special attention to practical experience, including demonstrations in the laboratory as well as a visit to a physicochemical treatment plant.

This training is currently only available in Dutch

Microscopic analysis of activated sludge

Evaluating biological treatment sludge quality is an extremely good tool in measuring treatment process stability and in taking targeted measures in the event of malfunctions. We organise this training on demand in Dutch.

Reverse Osmosis

Reverse osmosis (RO) is a membrane filtration technology that is used worldwide to desalinate water. This technique is not only used for the production of drinking water from seawater or brackish groundwater, but also for the production of ultra-pure water or advanced purification for reuse of wastewater. Working with and designing RO installations requires specialized knowledge. In this basic course, you will learn what the necessary and critical conditions are for applying RO.

Anaerobic purification

Anaerobic water treatment has been gaining popularity in recent years. This is mainly due to its advantages over conventional water treatment techniques, such as low energy costs, reduced sludge production, and the ability to convert organic waste into biogas. It is, therefore, a sustainable, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly solution for water purification and waste management, increasingly being employed in industries such as the food and beverage industry, the chemical industry, and the paper and pulp industry. only available in Dutch
