Advanced Urban Wastewater Treatment
Education of wastewater engineers has followed different routes in the Scandinavian countries due to different treatment strategies and the university education has focused on the present technology in each country. The future challenges however are the same.
It is now time for a combined effort for post education of the practitioners in the field in order to utilise the strong positions from each country and to develop a new practise to meet the future.
Lund University and the Technical University of Denmark together with Svenskt Vatten have developed a course for this purpose.
Wastewater treatment plants in Sweden and Denmark have been extended for nitrogen and phosphorus removal during the last decades. Today almost all municipalities have new or retrofitted plants that meet the discharge limits. However, a number of new challenges are coming up and will put significant pressure on municipalities and the engineers working in the field;
Who should attend
The course is open for wastewater engineers with a university background in wastewater treatment and with a wish for up-to-date knowledge of advanced wastewater treatment.
