Rationale
This course will provide a detailed knowledge of the current practices in biological wastewater treatment in general with specific reference to industrial wastewater treatment and technologies. Students are expected to learn the principles, objectives and basic criteria for the selection of appropriate process for biological wastewater treatment. During the course they will visit industrial wastewater treatment plants that employ different types of wastewater process units to achieve the discharge limits and minimize the pollution parameters. The field trips and site visits will give student an opportunity to discuss operational problems with the process engineers and plant operators and to become familiar with plant layouts.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire required learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes:

i. Identify various parameters of biological methods of analysis of waste water
ii. Select appropriate biological wastewater treatment processes and discuss pros and cons of each process
iii. Troubleshoot the various problems encountered in aerobic treatment of waste water
iv. Troubleshoot the various problems encountered in anaerobic treatment of waste water
v. Identify specific biological wastewater treatment to remove pollutants in general and nitrogen and phosphorus in particular and recognize emerging technologies for biological wastewater treatment.
