CHE5177 - Environmental design for aqueous emissions

6 points, SCA Band 2, 0.125 EFTSL

Postgraduate Faculty of Engineering

Leader: A Hoadley


Clayton First semester 2007 (Off-campus)


Waste minimisation: Source of aqueous waste in the process industries; reducing waste from reactors, separations and purge streams; process operations as a source of waste; minimising waste from process operations. Wastewater minimisation: Reducing wastewater through water reuse, recycling and regeneration; targets for minimum flow rate and design to meet targets for single constraints; multiple sources of water; flow rate constraints; multiple contaminants; changing the process to reduce wastewater production. Effluent treatment system design: Treatment processes; targets for minimum treatment flow rate and design for single contaminants; waste minimisation versus treatment.
