In this course most of the water-intensive industrial processes will be covered those necessitate a specific water quality input. After usage in the industry the water undergoes a change in quality and often requires treatment before it can be recycled, reused, or disposed of. In addition, the used water may also contain valuable resources that merit recovery.

Industrial water, treatment and reuse

Water is a vital resource in many production industries, serving as a means to transport raw materials, acting as a reaction medium, functioning as a cooling agent, feeding to steam production, and serving as an ingredient for various products.

In this course most of the water-intensive industrial processes will be covered those necessitate a specific water quality input. After usage in the industry the water undergoes a change in quality and often requires treatment before it can be recycled, reused, or disposed of. In addition, the used water may also contain valuable resources that merit recovery.

The second half of the course will cover the water treatment technologies those aim to eliminate undesired components, to recover valuable compounds, and to condition the water for reuse in specific processes. Furthermore, the course will cover the categorization of the compounds based on their appearance: dissolved, colloidal, suspended and particulate, and the treatment technologies those can be classified according to their ability to address these various compounds.

After the course you will be able to:

• Characterize water intensive-industries
• Define the main water-intensive processes
• Describe the relevant characteristics of process feed water and effluents
• Identify technologies for industrial water streams
• Identify opportunities for recovery and reuse

Intended for

Engineers with a basic knowledge on water processes in the production industry
