Whereas the total quantity of water on this planet is more or less fixed, its quality is deteriorating because we have been contaminating it for thousands of years, with little concern for the consequences.

Drinking water regulations continue to increase water quality standards, and industrial and commercial activities are requiring higher quality water in many applications. Due to population growth, drinking water and agricultural quantity demands are also steadily increasing.

Industries, in general, are poor stewards of water conservation. Most water brought into the plant is used only once, even though that use may have had very little impact on water quality.

These issues, combined with projected critical drought conditions in many areas, have created an environment where both municipal and industrial wastewater supplies are recognized as valuable resources.

This two-hour course introduces the four crossflow, pressure-driven membrane separation technologies of microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration and reverse osmosis. It addresses the performance characteristics of each and details two case histories illustrating wastewater recovery and reuse.

Who Should Attend?
This course is directed to those in technical sales and/or management who wish to learn more about these technologies. It is also appropriate for plant and environmental engineers interested in gaining a technical understanding of how membrane technologies may play a role in their facilities.

Peter Cartwright ImagePeter Cartwright has been in the water and wastewater treatment industry for 43 years, and has had his own consulting engineering company since 1980. He has delivered over 300 lectures and written the same number of articles on water/wastewater treatment technologies. He was the 2016 Distinguished McEllhiney Lecturer for the National Groundwater Assn. and is an active member of most of the water-related organizations.
