Urban and Industrial Wastewater Training Programme

Five-day hands on training to give practical exposure

Urban and Industrial Wastewater Training Programme
Objective:

The objective of this course is  to build capacity and create awareness among regulators, developers, consultants, NGOs, students and academics to understand wastewater treatment process, technologies and affordable treatment options. The programme further aims at evaluating the performance and design parameters along with the applicable cost implication associated with each treatment system.

The fast growing economy, rapid industrialisation and growing urban population in India along with increasing wastewater generation are reasons for concern and reiterate the need for appropriate water management practices.

Centre for Science and Environment recognises this need and has developed a five-day hands on training programme aimed at giving practical exposure to participants on wastewater treatment for industrial and urban wastewater management including reuse and recycle.

The objective of this programme is to build capacity and create awareness among regulators, developers, consultants, NGOs, students and academics to understand wastewater treatment process, technologies and affordable treatment options. The programme further aims at evaluating the performance and design parameters along with the applicable cost implication associated with each treatment system.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
  • Issues and challenges of urban and industrial wastewater treatment, conservation/ efficiency including reuse and recycle.
  • Wastewater treatment technologies including advanced treatment options
  • Decentralized approaches in treating urban wastewater (existing and emerging)
  • Planning, designing, monitoring and inspection of wastewater treatment systems
  • Proficiency on water and wastewater accounting
  • Sector specific exposure on wastewater treatment and management such as construction and industrial projects (distillery, tannery, textile, refinery, power plant etc).
  • Concept of zero discharge with case studies
  • Issues and challenges with Common Effluent Treatment Plants and way ahead
  • State of art practices for wastewater management
  • Law, policy options and standards for wastewater treatment
  • Hands on experience in wastewater sampling and analysis
 
Program Module
  • Introduction session: should include more discussions of CSE’s history and politics around its campaigns. This must be followed by a presentation of the publications – SOE’s and other manuals.
  • Field visits: increase them in order to have a more hands- on understanding of the working models. This helps in understanding of the process of implementation of any kind of model.
  • Class sessions: should include more of practical exercise to understand the planning and designing of the models (as was done for the DWWT session)
  • Resource persons must be provided guidelines for preparation of their presentations so as to avoid overlapping and repetition of sessions. The program schedule should begin with basics, followed by technology and methods and then move to solution processes.
  • Few sessions conducted by external resource persons were seen as projecting their market interests like Mr. Manu Bedi from PRAJ.
 
Faculty

Leading experts across various fields. The core faculty, however is drawn from CSE’s experienced research and programme staff. Visiting faculty and guest lecturers include working development professionals, eminent environmnimentalists, noted academicians from leading universities, grassroots activists and prominent policy makers, among others.
