Wastewater Design - Granular Activated Carbon Systems

Wastewater Design – Granular Activated Carbon Systems

The principle of adsorption and the ability of certain solid materials to remove dissolved substances from water have long been known. New application fields, such as groundwater remediation or enhanced wastewater treatment, have been added in recent decades.

This course presents the theoretical fundamentals of adsorption technology for water treatment with a focus on experimental adsorption studies, process modeling, and adsorber design. The training material provides a thorough description of adsorption, which can be adapted to a broad range of design requirements, rather than specific application examples for selected adsorbents or adsorbates. As a practice-oriented course, it focuses on the macroscopic processes in the reactors rather than the microscopic processes at the molecular level.

Once you complete your course review, take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of fifty (50) questions to earn 12 PDH credit.
