Event Information

Title: Using Modeling to Improve Industrial Wastewater Treatment

Description: Predicting the performance of industrial treatment systems without empirical data can be challenging. Modeling is a tool that can be used for assessing treatment performance when there is little to no performance data available. This session will provide attendees two examples of how models can be developed and applied to industrial wastewater treatment to predict treatment performance and aid in engineering design.

Learning Objectives
At the end of this session, attendees will be able to (1) describe a model for predicting sulfide inhibition during biological treatment of acid mine drainage, (2) explain the importance of model calibration for predicting treatment performance, and (3) express how process modeling can facilitate industrial wastewater treatment.
