Webinar: New techniques for optimising industrial and urban wastewater systems

Respond quickly to changes in load, power & chemical costs, effluent purity, regulation

Wastewater systems optimisation based on high-fidelity process models has been shown to reduce plant energy consumption by up to 40% while maintaining water purity standards.

This webinar demonstrates how plant operators can run efficient, effective industrial and urban wastewater treatment plants that can adapt to any change in incoming pollutant load, power and chemical costs, effluent purity standards or environmental regulations.

It also illustrates how operators can accurately determine the effect on plant operation of upgrades and retro-fits, using the retro-fit of a bio-filtration process as an example.

Topics covered

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • Model-based wastewater treatment analysis and design: general principles
  • gPROMS ProcessBuilder water treatment libraries
    • biological treatment models
    • physico-chemical models
  • Creating a high-fidelity model of a treatment process
  • Optimising treatment process design and operation
  • Implementing optimisation models online
