Wastewater Engineering (CHNG5005)
UNIT OF STUDY
The unit aims to acquaint students with the application of chemical engineering concepts and practice in an environmental context, the important example of wastewater treatment will be explored. The key issues that will be considered are: Wastewater creation and characterisation; Wastewater treatment costs; Primary, secondary and tertiary treatment options; High-rate anaerobic and aerobic treatment options; Sludge management and water recovery/reuse options; Process integration considerations. By the end of this UOS, a student should have gained an engineering-based appreciation of the technical, economic and social challenges posed by wastewater generation and its cost-effective treatment. This UoS is an advanced elective in chemical engineering. The concepts and enabling technologies taught here are relevant to the real-world practice of chemical engineering across a broad range of industries.
