The American Membrane Technology Association and Southeast Desalting Association held a one day, targeted Workshop on Concentrate Management on May 10, 2017 in Jupiter, Florida. The purpose of this workshop was to cover key issues around concentrate generation and disposal. There were presentations on permitting, deep well injection, blending for reuse, development of wetlands, addition of systems to further treat concentrate, zero liquid discharge examples, improved chemicals for enhanced recovery, forward osmosis, closed circuit desalination and regulatory issues. The entire workshop which consisted of 14 presentations was recorded and is now available as a valuable resource to anyone who wishes to learn more about concentrate management. The video contains all the presentations as they were given by the speaker with the slides shown as well. Whether you are new to reverse osmosis or are looking to learn more about how to handle the concentrate that is generated, this video will provide up-to-date information.
The entire recorded workshop is available on a 32 GB flash drive at a cost of $70 for AMTA members and $120 for non-members. Shipping will be included for any orders from within the United States.
