Water Forum Program
Theme: Save Energy While You Save Water - Better Equipment and Better Strategies. Water and energy are both essential in the process industries, and in all aspects of modern life. They require diligent management, and they are closely interconnected. Technology advances in water management have created opportunities to reduce the consumption of both of these resources simultaneously. Our Forum will explore new equipment and engineering approaches to accomplish this double objective. Confirmed speakers:
Jim Wark – Culligan
Advancements in Water Treatment
For decades, salt-based water softeners have been used to save households and businesses costs associated with scale build up. Boilers and hot water heaters are basic examples. This presentation introduces a new technology that offers a very different option. Could this be the future of water treatment?
Somnath Basu and Paul Sun – Headworks International
Petroleum Refinery Wastewater Treatment: Principles and Case Studies
Treatment of refinery wastewater streams can be challenging, due to the variability of their characteristics. This presentation will explain refinery wastewater treatment principles with the help of three case studies.
Juan Miguel Pinto – Energy Recovery
Energy Consumption and Desalination
Desalination has become an important water source not only for several countries, but also for some private companies. However, the cost of energy use in desalination can be prohibitive (> 50–60% of water total cost). The presentation will discuss a range of approaches to reducing energy consumption in desalination systems.
STS-AIChE Monthly Technical Meeting Program
The Water Forum will be followed (4:00-5:00 pm) by the STS-AIChE monthly dinner meeting – but without the dinner! The monthly meeting will use the same webinar registration as the Water Forum, so you do not need to register separately.
The monthly meeting speaker is Jason Afinowicz, PE, Practice Leader for Water Resources Planning at Freese and Nichols. His presentation is The 2021 Region H Water Plan: Long-Range Planning for the Greater-Houston Area. Water Forum participants are invited to stay for the AIChE meeting presentation, to gain insights into a different dimension of water management.
PDH certificates for licensed engineers are available for both the Water Forum and the STS-AIChE monthly meeting.
