14th March 2017, Aqua Enviro Training Suite, Wakefield
This is an extra course as 9th March is full. NB: Please do not book hotels and travel until we have confirmed the course has enough attendees to go ahead.
Very few activated sludge plants have been completely free from foaming and bulking problems at some time and other plants suffer these problems on a routine basis. In a similar way poor solids removal, inefficient BOD removal, odour problems, inhibition and toxicity can all occur on a seemingly random basis. Routine sampling and chemical analysis from this is expensive, demanding and its interpretation is not always clear. By contrast microscopic examination of the microbial consortium in the treatment plant is simple, inexpensive and provides extensive information as to the likely causes of plant problems. The results can also be used to optimize the performance of the plant to ensure that effluent is as good as the plant is able to produce and that energy costs and sludge production are at a minimum.
This paperback book with detailed contents of the training is given to all delegates.
Introduction to floc morphology and protozoa
Interpreting the results of microscopic examination
Control strategies for filamentous bacteria
TRAINERS: Microscopic Examination for the Operation & Control of Wastewater Treatment Plants
Emma has worked at Aqua Enviro since 2001 with a focus on activated sludge in municipal and industrial treatment plants. With her keen eye for spotting Vorticella, identifying filamentous bacterial species and the sheer number of samples examined means that Emma is well qualified to be training delegates in microscopy.
Dean is a project manager specialising in providing waste treatment solutions for the industrial sector.
He has also gained substantial experience in aerobic and anaerobic wastewater treatment technologies, having managed several laboratory and piloting studies, site optimisation and troubleshooting studies and more recently project managed the commissioning of a large-scale anaerobic digestion and sludge processing facility at Riverside STW, Rainham.
Working with technical experts at Aqua Enviro, Dean has developed a refined lithium tracer method for the quantification of mixing efficiencies and active zones in anaerobic digesters. This has been successfully applied to several anaerobic digesters, activated sludge plants and anoxic selector zones.
