$175 (Early Bird and Saver) / $210 (Full Rate after 3-30-18)

Exciting biological nitrogen load reduction technologies are emerging in the marketplace that provide significant opportunities at footprint, O&M, etc. The workshop will provide the attendees with a i) background on the fundamentals of nitrogen removal pathway via anammox, granular sludge, and others; ii) discuss the advantages/disadvantages (e.g., energy and chemicals) in comparison to conventional nitrogen removal; and iii) how they apply to wastewater treatment plants in 2017 and ahead. Following background, there will be various exercises for attendees to apply knowledge learned from the initial background modules for implementation at their facilities.
