Industrial processes generate large quantities of waste, resulting in health problems and adverse environmental impact. In particular, the treatment and reconditioning of wastewater is a complex problem, due to the existence of strong non-linearity effects, time variant parameters and multivariable coupling not allowing the adoption of simple models to predict the process efficiency and the output water quality.
In this paper, the ability of Artificial Neural Networks ...
