Students’ Pilot Laboratory for Homogeneous Chemical Reactor Analysis and Design in Olive Mill Wastewater Treatment


  • J.M. Ochando-Pulido University of Granada • 18071 Granada, Spain


The Chemical Engineering Department at the University of Granada have endeavored to make a number of high quality experiments to familiarize our students with our latest research and also scale-up of processes. A pilot-scale wastewater treatment plant was set-up to give students a close practical view of the treatments of effluents by-produced in different industries. The overall quality of the student work resulting from this pilot experience is excellent, and their feedback has been very positive.
