Participants of the course are technicians, engineers, supervisors, those being incharged of management and  operation of the wastewater treatment systems of different localities, including Heineken Vietnam - Tien Giang, Ba Ria Vung Tau, Quang Nam, Da Nang and Hoc Mon.

The course provided the participants with basic understanding and knowledge on operation of industrial wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). In particularly, the course guided participants (i) on how to identify potential problems which affect to the wastewater treatment processes, sludge treatment processes; and (ii) to solve identified technical problems through providing them with basic experiments in operation of WWTP and repairing methods.

The participants were so enthusiastic in sharing their own related experiences. They also found much interested to get to distinguish the nutrient ratio of the anaerobic process with that of the aerobic process; and to better understand about  the range of microorganism-tolerated temperature  in the wastewater treatment process. Removal of nitrogen from the discharge was the contents of participants’ concerns the most. Many questions related to theory as well as practical were raised by many different plants at the course.
