Separation processes for specific quality water production and new resource exploitation


At the end of this module, the student will have understood and be able to explain (main concepts):
-  the context of the new resources for water and useful  (seawaters,brine ,secondary effluent, agri-food by-products )
- specific processes for water production (desalination, reuse, ultrapure water, water for industrial use ..)
- principle and design of sorption unit operations (ion exchange, preparative chromatography, adsorption)
- principle and design of advanced membrane separation operations (reverse osmosis, electromembrane processes)
- principle and design of unit operations based on phase changes (precipitation, crystallization,...)
The student will be able to:
- design processes for urban wastewaters reuse
- design desalination processes (osmosis, distillation, integrated processes...)
- design processes for production of  water for specific industrial  uses
- design processes for water management in industry
- identify new resources
- design systems to use these new resource
- apply the knowledge to other case studies

Needed prerequisite

Basic concepts for unit operations
Technology and design of unit operations
Heat transfer and reactors
Basis of chemistry

Form of assessment

The evaluation of outcome prior learning is made as a continuous training during the semester. According ot the teaching, the assessment will be different: as a written exam, an oral exam, a record, a written report, peers review...
