This course will provide you with the knowledge about the current electrochemical treatment of industrial waters as well as give the tools to improve and assess water treatment on sites. The effect of electrochemical treatment on the removal of contaminants, possible application and feasibility studies are discussed during the course. You leave the course with the ready and assessed solution to treat your water streams.

Course content

In this course, participants will:

  • Familiarise themselves with current application and utilisation of electrochemical treatment at industrial scale
  • Learn to identify, classify and choose contaminants that can be successfully removed to meet the limits by electrochemical methods
  • Distinguish the parameters affecting the electrochemical treatment
  • Learn to develop and integrate the treatment facility containing electrochemical unit to treat mining waters
  • Gain skills in evaluating the suitability of electrochemical treatment of waters at various industrial locations
  • Compare electrochemical treatment with conventional technologies by means of integrating water balance modelling
