Course Contents
This course will provide technological knowledge of advanced drinking water treatment processes. Lectures, exercises, laboratory experiments, and an excursion are part of the course.

The course consists of the following modules:
1. Adsorption and ion exchange
2. Softening in pellet reactors
3. Micro- and ultrafiltration
4. Nanofiltration and Reverse Osmosis
5. Disinfection and (advanced) oxidation processes
6. Emerging and alternative technologies

Laboratory experiments:
1. Activated carbon adsorption
2. Nanofiltration
3. Disinfection

Literature review + presentation:
Literature review of an emerging or alternative drinking water treatment technology, resulting in a flash presentation during the last module.


Study Goals
After successful completion of the CIE4475 course, students will be able to:

- Explain and compare different advanced drinking water treatment processes, including, membrane separation, advanced oxidation processes, adsorption onto activated carbon, and pellet softening;
- Execute and discuss laboratory-scale experiments;
- Design advanced drinking water treatment processes, using basic water quality (model) calculations;
- Relate technological basics of design parameters to significance for full-scale unit operations;
- Summarize critical operational and design parameters of an upcoming, emerging water treatment technology.
Education Method
Lectures in combination with laboratory experiments, exercises, computer modelling and excursion
