The course aims to provide knowledges of conventional and advance biological processes for the treatment of waste and wastewater from different origin (agro-industrial, municipal, industrial). The course will give knowledge on the parameters and dependencies which affect the biological removal efficiencies during the waste and wastewater treatment, the production and recovery yields. During the laboratory practises will be tranfered knowledges regarding chemical and physical analyses for the characterization of waste and wastewater, as well as the monitoring of environmental bioprocess.
•Mass balance of environmental bioprocesses, calculation of yields and efficiencies;
• Enzyme kinetics, Michaelis Menten equation, Inhibition, Microbial Growth and Monod Equation,
• Goundwork of environmental bioreactors for bio-refineries application, numerical exercises of real case studies;
• Biological oxidation, nitrification, denitrification, biological phosphorus removal, etc.), energy recovery through anaerobic digestion.
• Graphic representation of an environmental chemical/bioprocess, use of simulators (software) for modeling and testing of environmental bioreactors.

Attending and non-attending candidates will have to take an oral test focusing on the topics covered during the course. During the exam, the candidate will present a technical report concerning the design of an activated sludge process and monitoring methods for the biological process.
