COURSE TITLE: Centralized Wastewater Treatment for Facilities Managing Oil and Gas Extraction Wastes: Wastewater Characterization and Management
COURSE NO: C02-077
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Centralized Wastewater Treatment for Facilities Managing Oil and Gas Extraction Wastes: Wastewater Characterization and Management
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course investigates  whether the current Centralized Wastewater Treatment (CWT) Effluent Limitations Guidelines and Standards (ELGs) are adequately managing wastewater discharges from CWT facilities accepting oil and gas extraction wastes.

 

The EPA collected and evaluated data regarding oil and gas wastewater characteristics, as well as data characterizing discharges from CWT facilities accepting oil and gas extraction wastes, which are presented in this course.

 

The exploration, development and production of oil and gas reserves vary markedly from region to region. There are a number of solid and liquid waste materials generated during oil and gas exploration, extraction and production, and these waste materials may be managed by CWT facilities. The nature and characteristics and quantity of the wastes generated depend upon a number of factors, such as the type of drilling, the characteristics of the formation, the depth of the well and the type and quantity of chemical additives used during drilling, production and well maintenance activities.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for chemical, petroleum, environmental and industrial engineers as well as other interested in understanding the wastewater characterization and management used at CWT to treat oil and gas extraction wastewaters.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Familiarizing with the basics of the wastes that are discharged from oil and gas extraction activities
  • Familiarizing with pollutants that are considered for evaluation in drilling wastewater
  • Gaining an overview of the additives used in well development along with their purpose
  • Familiarizing with pollutants that are considered for evaluation in produced water
  • Familiarizing with characterizing the concentrations of pollutants in process wastewater discharges

COURSE TITLE: Biological Wastewater Treatment II - MBBR Processes
COURSE NO: C04-045
Biological Wastewater Treatment II - MBBR Processes
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides a discussion and detailed examples of process design calculations for a single stage BOD removal MBBR (moving bed biofilm reactor) system, a two-stage BOD removal MBBR system, a single stage tertiary nitrification MBBR system, a two-stage BOD removal/Nitrification MBBR system a post-anoxic denitrification MBBR system and a pre-anoxic denitrification MBBR system.

 

This course is Part II of a three-part series. The other two courses in this Biological Wastewater Treatment series are about activated sludge processes (Part I) and Membrane Biofilm Reactor (MBR) processes (Part III).

 

The MBBR process is an attached growth process that uses plastic carriers to provide a surface on which biofilm grows.  The MBBR process doesn’t require sludge recycle, because the biomass remains in the system attached to the plastic carriers.  The required reactor size for an MBBR process is typically significantly smaller than that for an activated sludge process treating the same wastewater flow, or for other common attached growth processes like the RBC or trickling filter. It can be used for BOD removal, biological nitrification, biological denitrification, and biological phosphorus removal.

 

This 4 PDH online course is intended primarily for civil engineers, environmental engineers, and chemical engineers. After completing this course you will be familiar with the general components and configuration of an MBBR wastewater treatment process and be able to make typical process design calculations for an MBBR process.

COURSE TITLE: Pressure and Gravity Sewers
COURSE NO: C02-068
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Pressure and Gravity Sewers
Course Highlights

This online engineering courses is divided in to two parts: The first part discusses sewer systems that use pressure to deliver sewage to a treatment system. The second part discusses small diameter gravity sewers (SDGS) which convey effluent by gravity from a tank to a treatment location. Each part presents an overall description of the relevant topic along with the advantages and disadvantages of each system, design criteria, performance data, operation and maintenance and insights about cost related data.

 

Alternative wastewater collection systems can be cost effective for homes in areas where traditional collection systems are too expensive to install and operate. Pressure and gravity sewers are used in sparsely populated or suburban areas in which conventional collection systems would be expensive. These systems generally use smaller diameter pipes with a slight slope or follow the surface contour of the land; thereby, reducing excavation and construction costs. These systems convey effluent by gravity from an interceptor tank (or septic tank) to a centralized treatment location or pump station for transfer to another collection system or treatment facility.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to civil, mechanical and environmental engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the planning, design and installation of low pressure and small diameter gravity sewer systems.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Learning about the common types of alternative wastewater collection systems
  • Understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each type of system
  • Understanding the applicability of each system
  • Familiarizing with the design criteria,  performance data and  operation and maintenance processes of each system
  • Ability to compare conventional wastewater collection systems to alternative wastewater systems
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the document titled, “Pressure and Gravity Sewers” which is based on a compilation of the USEPA Wastewater Technology Fact Sheet, “Sewers, Pressure” and Decentralized Systems Technology Fact Sheet, “Small Diameter Gravity Sewers”.
