A&M center to host membrane filtration course

The Separation Sciences Group at the Process Engineering Research & Development Center at Texas A&M University will host a hands-on, practical short course, Water Quality Management: Municipal, Industrial and Environmental Applications, July 14-16 in College Station.

The short course, a workshop on membrane filtration systems, will benefit manufacturers, consultants, designers, researchers, water personnel and wastewater engineers. Short course attendees will learn about pretreatment technologies, membrane filtration operations, posttreatment technologies and integration of best practices in processing facilities and municipal systems.

The objectives are:

  • provide practical and theoretical training on the application of membranes and other separation technologies to water reclaim and reuse in manufacturing and municipal applications, which includes cost/benefit analysis;
  • provide training in water quality analytics and application to industrial, environmental, and municipal water; and
  • demonstrate the operation of actual equipment commonly seen in the field and review the practical aspect of their operation.

The short course registration fee is $599 and includes daily lunch, refreshments, local transportation, a short course eBook manual and a certificate of completion. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. If three or more individuals from the same organization register, there is a 10 percent registration discount. Participants must be preregistered before arriving in College Station. You can register online here.

Short course registration, welcome and announcements will be at 5 p.m. on July 14 in the Hyatt Place College Station lounge. On July 15 and 16, the short course will go from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Short course lectures will be held in Rudder Tower on the Texas A&M University campus, and participants will travel by bus to the Texas A&M RELLIS campus and the EcoLyse facility in the afternoon for demonstrations.
