Chemical Engineering, Final Year Project
All relevant results will be published in international journals and presented at national and international conferences. In addition, if these materials perform well, the patentability of any new results will be considered before any public disclosure.
The main goal of this project is to provide a roadmap for implementing a sustainable wastewater treatment plant. The outcomes of this plant are the treated water, which is safe to be discharged into the environment, the treated sludge used as fertilizer, and finally, the biogas used for electricity production.
The project's first phase is to design a wastewater treatment plant for the USEK-university hospital, including material and energy balances, purity, sizing, process control, and optimization. After this step is completed, they will simulate the process using suitable software (AspenPlus, AutoCAD, EdrawMax) and conduct an economic study to know the feasibility of such a project. Finally, a Life Cycle Assessment study will be performed using GaBi software to evaluate the plant's environmental impacts. This last part will be conducted at the chemical engineering department at Igualada.
