Strengthening Domestic Wastewater Quality Testing Capability for technical staff at NUOL

Domestic wastewater is an important issue in Lao PDR, particularly domestic wastewater management including domestic wastewater drainage and treatment. Either conventional or innovative solution of domestic wastewater management cannot be neglected in strengthening domestic wastewater quality testing capability for both existing and next generation staff. By the end of last month (24 August 2021), Center of Excellence in Environment (CoEE) at National University of Laos (NUOL) organized a training on biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) by for its technical staff in the utilization of advanced technology and method in BOD analysis of water. This activity will support the work on the establishment of the water -oriented living lab (WoLL) in the InowAsia project under Erasmus +. CoEE is a member and coordinator of NUOL as a partner of InowAsia project. After this training, the staff can further train other students and young scientists at NUOL. This advanced technology is not new to the world but new to our staff and young scientists at NUOL. More training on water BOD measurement training will be carried out not only to students, staff and young scientists of NUOL but also to water quality technical staff of the laboratories at ministerial levels during or after our InowAsia project.
