IWES Gold Coast, Australia 2014

We are excited to announce the return of our most popular event. IWES Gold Coast 2014 will take place throughout the week of July 14-18. The program incorporates a wider range

Design and Operation of Membrane Systems in Municipal, Mining and Industrial Applications.

A new comprehensive 5 day course on membrane plant design and operation, taught by leading Australian membrane practitioners. This is a practical, problem based course that covers design and operation of membrane systems in municipal, industrial and mining applications.

Participants will work a series of design problems from different industries that cover the basics of water quality, equipment selection and sizing, data collection and interpretation, operating strategies, trouble shooting and cost estimating. Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in a hands-on membrane repair activity, visit an industrial membrane plant and will receive detailed notes for each application, worked solutions and copies of design software for reverse osmosis and antiscalant chemicals.

Greg Leslie is the course director and co-presenter for this course. Greg is a Professor of Chemical Engineering and the deputy director of the UNESCO Centre for Membrane Science and Technology at the University of New South Wales. Prior to joining UNSW, he worked in the public and private sector on water treatment, reuse and desalination projects in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong and the United States.

Greg’s experience includes work on the Singapore NEWater recycling projects at Bedok, Kranji and Seletar and at the Orange County Water District (OCWD) in California as the deputy programme manager for the Groundwater Water Replenishment System; the largest indirect potable reuse project in the United States.

Principles of Wastewater Treatment

The aim of this course is to teach the key enabling scientific and process engineering fundamentals which underpin wastewater treatment processes. These are taught via real wastewater treatment problems and case studies.

This is the most popular wastewater fundamentals course offered in Australia. Now, featuring site visits, real case study data and exercises, and state-of-the-art multi-media teaching resources.

Paul Lant is the course director and co-presenter of this course. Paul Lant is Professor and Head of the School of Chemical Engineering at The University of Queensland. He has an international reputation for his research in the field of wastewater treatment. His formal qualifications include a MEng and PhD from Newcastle University (UK) and an MBA from The University of Queensland.

He was a co-founder of the Advanced Water Management Centre, the leading water and wastewater R&D group in Australia. Paul is also establishing a reputation as a leading chemical engineering educator, receiving awards for undergraduate teaching and postgraduate supervision innovations. He was a member of teams winning national teaching awards for both undergraduate and postgraduate education in 2005 and 2006.
