Topic:Principles of Water Pollution Control
Speaker:Dr. Amarjeet Bassi
Time:Principles of Water Pollution Control
Location:Room A316, School of Chemical and Material Engineering
Water pollution is an increasing global threat as the world population increases and the availability of fresh water diminishes. This lecture covers the principles of water and wastewater treatment applied to different processes including municipalities and industries. First a basic understanding of concepts related to pollution and pollutants is presented. The role of environmental regulations is discussed. General wastewater quality parameters are reviewed. Processes and unit operations in wastewater treatment are introduced. Considerations in integrating unit processes and operations into a treatment system are presented.
