  • International Specialized Course: Modelling and Control of Wastewater Treatment Plants

    “Why control WWTPs?”Objective of the proposed course is to give convincing reasons to this question that is quite frequent in this area. Unfortunately, WWTPs are not remunerative and, considering the relatively simplicity (really only “apparent”) of the employed technologies, the application of control strategies seems to be not essential. Detailed information on biomass activity is necessary ...
