The Virginia Water Environment Association invites you to join for the 2018 Education Seminar. This year’s seminar Capacity & Capability: Enhanced Performance through Process Intensification will focus on current trends in process intensification, showcasing innovative technologies applied to mainstream, sidestream, and solids handling processes to reduce energy and chemical consumption, recover resources, and reduce the footprint of wastewater facilities. Session topics include biosolids master planning, advanced processes and alternative end uses, resource and nutrient recovery, and biosolids process optimization.

The Education Committee is excited to announce a high profile opening session that will begin keynote speaker Dr. James Barnard. Dr. Barnard is recognized internationally for developing several nutrient removal processes including the BARDENPHO and Phoredox processes for wastewater treatment. He will share his insights from his 40+ years of experience the design and operation of advanced biological nutrient removal systems and discuss the future of process intensification. The morning session will also include presentations from utility leaders Dr. Charles Bott of Hampton Roads Sanitation District and Dr. Sudhir Murthy of DC Water. Three concurrent sessions will be offered in the afternoon, and attendees will be offered up to 5 CPE credits for attending the technical sessions.

In addition to the technical program the Education Committee has partnered with the Central Virginia Regional Activities Committee to develop an expanded social event on Wednesday May 9th from 6:30-9:30PM. Tickets to this event may be purchased separately and will include access to the exhibition hall, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and two drink tickets.
