Water reuse: calculating energy demand in membrane technology

When water is scarce − as is the case in many arid regions of the world − the only available options for water supply are seawater desalination and wastewater reuse. Both of these make extensive use of membrane technologies, and both have key design and operating parameters which define their performance and, ultimately, their cost. So what are the energy implications for using these technologies?

This four-hour course is directed at undergraduates with an interest in water reuse but who have no direct experience of the water industry. Learners are not expected to have any engineering knowledge but must be ready to perform calculations to work through the videos and mathematical equations in this course.

Learners start by looking at the fundamental relationships governing flow and pressure in water systems, building to a complete determination of energy consumption for both process options. By the end of the course, learners will have a basic understanding of membrane processes and will appreciate the importance of energy consumption of membrane technologies for seawater desalination and wastewater reuse.

This course is provided by Judd Water & Wastewater Consultants as a free resource on OpenLearn Create (The Open University).

MBR Insights remote training

Judd Water and Wastewater Consultants offers a range of specialist ‘continuing professional development’ water and wastewater treatment courses, including remote delivery packages. All our courses are modular so we can design a completely bespoke package to suit your particular training needs and budget.

Typically, courses last between one and five days and can include mp4 presentations, webinars, tutorials, assignments (group and individual) as well as open discussion forums and a copy of our book.

Courses can be delivered at your own location, or remotely (the latter meaning you don't incur travelling or accommodation expenses). We can also support you after your course.

The MBR Short Course

This course can be delivered at your location as a one-day crash course or as a more in-depth two-day course. It can also be combined with other courses to provide a comprehensive course on advanced wastewater treatment and reuse.

This course provides comprehensive, up-to-date information on the design and operational aspects of MBR technology and its applications. The course includes hard data from commercial technologies and actual reference sites. It is aimed at a broad section of stakeholders, including end users, consultants, contractors, regulators, technology providers and researchers in wastewater treatment technology for both industrial and municipal effluents.
