2017 Fall Industrial Activated Sludge Wastewater Seminar



Environmental Business Specialists, LLC has hosted biological wastewater training events since 1997 at client sites, cities throughout the United States, and our headquarters. The cornerstone of these is our semi-annual Biological Wastewater Seminars held in the Spring and Fall at our company headquarters and laboratories in Mandeville, LA. More than 500 wastewater professionals have attended these particular courses over the years gaining both basic wastewater training as well as an introduction to unique, cutting edge approaches and tools to help one improve the performance and cost effectiveness of their wastewater operations. This year marks the 20th Anniversary of EBS and we are making the 2017 Fall Seminar a special event.

As always, the Activated Sludge Course will be taught by Paul Klopping, Mike Foster, and Dr. Cliff Lange, but the content and format will be expanded and reorganized to deliver what we hope will be the most applicable and beneficial industrial wastewater training we have ever provided. A new addition to the course faculty will be Dr. Andrew Englande, Professor Emeritus in Environmental Engineering from Tulane University. Each trainer brings a long and diverse set of experiences from a large number of manufacturing processes to the course, generating unique perspectives and discussions. We want to expose you to a vast amount of knowledge and troubleshooting thoughts that can be useful in your career, both now and in the future since one never knows what unique situation will present itself. This course is intended for experienced wastewater professionals with at least a basic understanding of the activated sludge process, allowing us to pursue deeper discussions on technical issues. In addition to experienced plant personnel, we encourage experienced consultants, corporate environmental professionals, and specialty chemical suppliers to join us for this one-of-a-kind continuing education opportunity.

Hydromantis SimuWorks

We just added another new component, SimuWorks by Malcolm Fabiyi, Ph.D.  SimuWorks™, is a high fidelity, realistic 3D simulator platform that replicates all of the operational realities of an actual wastewater treatment process. This hands-on, simulation based platform allows wastewater training to be done in a realistic operational environment. Participants will learn about a range of wastewater operations and address operational issues using the simulator.

It is very important to EBS that you leave with a greater understanding of wastewater treatment and troubleshooting concepts than when you arrived. We do not want you feeling more confused than before. Please note that this course is not for individuals new to the wastewater treatment process. The concepts initiate at a moderate level of understanding. If you are newer to wastewater treatment, we welcome you to our courses and recommend you attend our Aerated Stabilization Basin course as these concepts are presented from a practical and real-world perspective. Then, we hope to see you at this course in the future as your experience level increases.

We are excited to have you and hope you will join us for this updated and exciting activated sludge course.

2017 Fall Industrial ASB Wastewater Seminar

Environmental Business Specialists, LLC has hosted biological wastewater training events since 1997 at client sites, cities throughout the United States, and our headquarters.

This year marks the 20th Anniversary of EBS and we are making the 2017 Fall Seminar a special event.

The Aerated Stabilization Basin (ASB) course will be taught almost entirely by our EBS employees that perform the field and laboratory work for our clients. The content will be the same as previous ASB courses but presented from a very practical and real-world perspective. This course is a great opportunity for newer engineers and environmental scientists at both the mill and corporate levels. It is also a great course for managers that need a basic understanding of how their system operates and the steps that can be taken to keep it running well and cost effectively.

In addition to our in-house presenters, you will get a chance to meet and chat with our additional presenters teaching the Activated Sludge Course for intermediate to advanced knowledge seekers. During breaks, at lunch, and at our two after hours events, you will have many opportunities to get to know and learn from not only all our instructors but from your co-attendees as well. We want to expose you to a vast amount of knowledge and troubleshooting thoughts that can be useful in your career, both now and in the future since one never knows what unique situation will present itself. In addition to plant personnel, we encourage consultants, corporate environmental professionals, and specialty chemical suppliers to join us for this continuing education opportunity.

We are excited to have you and hope you will join us our aerated stabilization basin course.

Lake Charles, LA Early Registration Discount Available
2018 Lake Charles Biological Wastewater Workshop

This course is a shortened two-day version of our Spring and Fall seminars located at the EBS headquarters. In this course, you will start with an overview of wastewater treatment, discuss the system’s microbiology and microscopic examination, and assess and evaluate activated sludge system performance. The course will build upon and advance you through to the more technical discoveries being observed and measured today that negatively impact wastewater treatment operations – the subtle things that one cannot see but which can cause your biological system to stop functioning at its fullest. It will then culminate with a discussion on troubleshooting wastewater systems.

This condensed but still well-rounded course covers all potential applications for wastewater treatment plants. Combined with a robust discussion that occurs from audience participation on their systems, you will leave having learned a great deal of knowledge and tips that others experience to enhance your troubleshooting knowledge base.
