Wastewater Treatment Virtual Lab

Time to complete course: 26 min.

About the Wastewater Treatment Virtual Lab Simulation

In this simulation, you will study the treatment of urban wastewater. You will learn how to optimize the treatment process so that the cleaned water can be safely reintroduced into the water circulation. You will also analyze the micropollutant concentration in the in- and outflow. Will you be able to rescue the fish population suffering from pollution?
