Skill Set Development

In an effort to provide more insight into the specific skill sets that the attendees will develop at the upcoming Wastewater Treatment Training Course for the Oil & Chemical Industry, below are some quotes in that regard from the Instructor Staff:

Dr. Lial Tischler: “Each student will learn the bases and calculation methods for all pollutant limits and special conditions in their facility's NPDES permit, and how to interpret and report monitoring results. They will also learn which state and EPA regulations on emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and hazardous air pollutants may apply to their wastewater treatment units, and how such emissions are estimated, permitted, and reported.”

Dr. David Jenkins: “In the Microscopic Techniques Session, class participants will take home a plant operational skill that enables them to apply Microscopic Analytical tools in the examination of Biological Solids such that the results can be translated into adjustments in the process control parameters for the optimization of liquids – solids separation.”

Mr. David Kujawski: “In the Fundamental Biological Process Control Session, participants will become well versed in every aspect of the MCRT Operating Strategy for precise mathematical targeting of optimized process variables. Students will take home an easy to operate MCRT Model which can be immediately implemented in the full scale plant. These skills will enable the students to maximize steady state conditions in their plant’s Bioreactors, regardless of changes in the Influent.”

Dr. Michael Stenstrom: “In the Aeration & Energy Systems Session, participants will learn how to make decisions and process adjustments on one of the top 3 operating costs in the environmental division of any refinery’s budget. The students will take home the ability to conduct empirical investigations such that operating costs can be minimized without negatively impacting performance, including optimization in both process variable targeting and equipment design.”

Dr. Jerry Lin: “In the Process Control Lab Testing Session, students will learn standardized procedures and limitations of critical measurements for daily WWTP operational control. They will be taken through precise calculations for process variable adjustments for the most important parameters. They will be shown how to use tests such as Oxygen Uptake Rate (OUR) for process control. Students will take home a variety of data interpretation tools which can immediately be applied not only for full scale plant day-to-day control, but also for process experimentation conclusions.”

Dr. Davis Ford: “In the WWTP Pretreatment Systems Session, students will taken through a comprehensive process control protocol for optimization of Oil –Water Separation equipment, such as API Separators, DAF \ IAF \ NGF Units, and Equalization Tanks. This control program design will enable students to apply optimized and balanced management of multiple system effects simultaneously, including Recovered Oil, RCRA Sludge, Downstream Wastewater, and Downstream Biomass Sludge.”

Mr. David Kujawski & Dr. Jerry Lin: "During the Advanced Biological Process Control Session, each student will be taken through the exact step-by-step field measurement procedure and related calculations to quickly determine the true full scale plant capacities on several loading bases, as derived from the real site-specific Biokinetic Constants. Students will take home a Respirometric Modeling Tool that can be immediately applied to plant operational control for quantifying the true process limitations under a wide range of influent variation.”

Dr. David Jenkins & Mr. David Kujawski: “As part of the Biological Clarifers Process Control Session, students will take home the ability to perform State Point Analysis in the full scale plant, such that mathematical relationships can be established among the major Clarifier variables, which results in a daily operational process of calculated adjustment to find the optimized window between Effluent Solids and Sludge Thickening, as opposed to trial and error control.”
