2nd SHORT COURSE ON WASTEWATER TREATMENT

INTRODUCTION
Malaysia is experiencing rapid population growth, cities expansion and industrial development. This inevitably leads to a large amount of wastewater (both domestic and industrial) generation, which if not treated properly will seriously threaten the environment. Many treatment plants are currently under-performing and are unable to produce treated effluents that would meet the Malaysian discharge limits. As well as being the result of plant over-loading and non-optimum operation, this is also due to inadequate understanding of the treatment process details.

The Short Course on Wastewater Treatment will present scientific knowledge and practical information on the application of various treatment processes for the treatment of municipal sewage and industrial wastewaters. The course is aimed at engineers and specialists in fields related to wastewater treatment and environmental engineering. The course information will be presented via lectures, class discussions, question/answer sessions and case studies. Laboratory sessions and a site visit will be integrated into the course. Exchange of information and experiences by the participants will also be encouraged.

OBJECTIVES
" To help the participants develop a better understanding of various wastewater treatment processes and appreciate the requisites of efficient treatment plant functioning
" To enhance participants knowledge on operation of treatment processes
" To appraise participants on safety at wastewater treatment plants

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Any one with a passion for wastewater treatment-Engineers, technicians, academicians, students, etc.
