Part of the Advances in Science, Technology & Innovation book series (ASTI)


This paper explains the technical elements of the plant, the design of the diffuser system approach, conceptualization of the digital models regimes for effluents at short and far-field of the mixing zone, and design of the selected diffuser with a particular emphasis on modeling of mixing process in near-field.
