DENVER, Dec. 17, 2007 -- Water professionals will learn about the latest innovations and uses of membrane technology in water treatment during two American Water Works Association (AWWA) seminars January 28-31, 2008, in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
"Micro- and Ultra-filtration Membrane Technologies" begins the seminar series January 28-29. Paul Mueller, Senior Process Engineer, and Robert Huehmer, Senior Technologist, at CH2M HILL will impart the fundamentals of low-pressure membrane practices. Attendees will consider how membrane use can help meet new regulations. They will also tackle design and construction issues, costs of installation and a startup sequence.
The second seminar, January 30-31, will cover "Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration." Scott Freeman, Membrane & Technology Leader at Black & Veatch Corporation and Tom Pankratz, Vice President of CH2M HILL, will walk attendees though preliminary considerations, design, construction, cost and a startup sequence for high-pressure membrane practices. Specific applications addressed will include: desalination, softening, color removal, disinfection by-product precursors, pesticides and specific parameters.
The seminars take place at the Hilton Garden Inn in Fort Lauderdale. Attendees who register for both seminars receive 20% off the registration fees. For more information and registration, visit: www.awwa.org/education/seminars/membrane
