The Global Petroleum Research Institute (GPRI) is hosting the 2013 Water/Wastewater Short Course April 15–17 at Texas A&M University. Following a theme of “Water and Wastewater: Issues, Challenges, Solutions, and New Technologies,” the course will include experts from both industry and academia, as well as daily equipment demonstrations. This is the twenty-third year of the course, which is directed by Carl Vavra of the GPRI Designs Separation Science Research Center.
According to organizers, the event is the “industry's only ‘hands-on’ workshop on water and waste water treatment. Instructors will present on water treatment technology for industrial water systems including oil- and gas-produced water and hydraulic fracturing flowback brine.
