3rd Summerschool "Innovative technologies for urban wastewater treatment plants"

Curso de verano que se realizará en la Universidad de Santiago de Compostela en el mes de Julio de 2010 centrado en las tecnologías más novedosas para el tratamiento de aguas residuales.

This short, intensive and highly specialised course is focussed on innovative technologies emerging nowadays for the treatment of municipal wastewater, such as membrane, granule and biofilm-based reactors; processes oriented to the removal of nitrogen, phosphorus and micropollutants; innovative processes for VOC and odour removal; recovery of resources from sewage; and new tools for the optimisation of sewage treatment plants such as life cycle analysis, ecotoxicology assays and microbial ecology characterisation.
The course is mainly oriented to PhD students who want to achieve a higher degree of specialisation in this field, but also to other students or professionals specifically interested in these topics and with a limited amount of time.
The course is organised by the Group of Environmental Engineering and Bioprocesses (GEEB) of the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC, Spain) and will be held at
the School of Engineering (ETSE).
Facilities available include a pilot-plant hall with fully operative pilot-scale treatment plants (granular, membrane, hybrid, etc.), lab-scale devices, several
wastewater laboratories, a water chemistry laboratory and a microbiology laboratory.
Didactical methods used in this course include:
a) Lectures given by senior researchers
b) Individual and group exercises in the classroom
c) Discussion sessions
d) Practical operation of pilot scale treatment plants
e) A technical visit

Furthermore, a social programme has been designed to enhance the interaction between all participants (students, lecturers and collaborators) in the course.
