Beyond regulatory compliance



Date: 07:00:00 - Oct 16 2019
Speakers: Melvyn Lam
Moderators: Tom Lynch CChem FRSC

The ability to accurately determine organic loading and organic removal efficiencies go beyond regulatory compliance requirements. By acquiring real-time organic data at upstream treatment steps, immense opportunities to optimize a WWTP’s performance exists. Using TOC data to monitor early treatment steps, empowers operators with the knowledge to make critical process decisions. Decisions that if not made in a timely matter, would lead to an inability to manage varying wastewater influent and validate carbon levels as well as equipment failures.

What you’ll learn

  • How TOC can help optimize upstream treatment processes and enable industrial water reuse   
  • Differences in TOC technologies 
  • Sievers patented Supercritical Water Oxidation technology and why it is best suited for harsh upstream wastewater samples 
  • Examples and case studies of how TOC can be utilized
