Relying on Membranes for Safe and Sustainable Potable Reuse
This two-part webinar series took place in December of 2022. Best practices and regulations serving both Indirect and Direct Potable Reuse (IPR and DPR) are changing as this practice grows. This two-part series begins by looking at the different approaches taken in two states which are deploying potable reuse: California and Florida. In part two we plan to look at different technologies and consider specific issues such as addressing low molecular weight organics.
Ben’s Virtual Corner – Importance of Profiling and Probing NF/RO Systems
Ben Movahed and his co-host Julie Nemeth-Harn will describe the profiling and probing procedures for NF/RO systems. They will also cover system diagnosis using data from probing and give several full scale facility examples. AMTA members can read the article in the August issue of Solutions.
How to Buy Membranes
Membrane procurement is a critical part of establishing a membrane plant and during ongoing operations. There are many important decisions that need to be made and issues considered along the way to ensure project and long-term operational success.
Ben’s Virtual Corner – How to Meet and Surpass Water Quality Goals in Membrane Facilities
Ben Movahed and his guest co-host, Richard White, will discuss the need for comprehensive design and planning to produce the desired quality to meet and surpass water quality goals in membrane facilities that can accommodate fluctuations and deteriorations in raw water quality. AMTA members can read the article in the May issue of Solutions. The webinar is free for members and $15 for non-members.
This four-part webinar series will provide information on membrane cleaning basics, CIP system design, MF/UF cleaning and NF/RO cleaning.
Ben’s Virtual Corner – Key Parameters for Membrane Systems
Ben Movahed and his guest co-host, Denis Guibert, will discuss key parameters to consider when designing a membrane plant. Membrane plant design and final facility performance is only as good as the basis of design used and the pre-design assumptions you make. It’s important to optimize and confirm the basis of design as the design progresses to provide reliable and consistent water quality, while meeting or surpassing project goals, codes, and regulations. AMTA members can read the article in the November issue of Solutions.
Ben’s Virtual Corner – Pretreatment for Membrane Treatment Systems
Ben Movahed discussed the importance of pretreatment for membrane treatment systems in Solutions—Ben’s Design Tip Corner (Volume 40, Issue 3). Ben hosted this free one-hour webinar where Ben and his colleague, Russ Swerdfeger, discussed pretreatment for membrane systems and allowed attendees to dialogue and ask questions.
The Ceramic Membranes Webinar series presents the latest information on ceramic low-pressure membranes and their use in drinking water production, pretreatment to high-pressure membranes, wastewater treatment, and other applications. Ceramic membrane manufacturers discuss the general features and benefits of their membranes, give case studies and look at their use in the treatment of domestic and industrial wastewater.
Membrane Master Class II
The AMTA/AWWA Membrane Master Class II webinar series aired in April 2021. This four-part program took a look at current trends and best practices in the development and implementation of membrane technologies. Each session includes recognized experts and in-depth discussions on membrane system innovations, design and operation.
Fellowship Recipients: Advancements in Membrane Research
This two-part webinar series features our 2020 fellowship recipients. The AMTA/NWRI, Ian C. Watson, and AMTA/Reclamation 2020 fellowship winners presented their latest membrane technology research findings.
Research, Innovation & New Directions in Desalination
AMTA’s four-part series focusing on research, innovations and new directions in desalination covers a broad spectrum of the latest topics, from sustainability and evolutions in desalination technology to industry-specific adaptations and applications.
Membranes 101 covers the fundamentals of membrane technology with a look at current trends and best practices in microfiltration/ultrafiltration (MF/UF), nanofiltration/reverse osmosis (NF/RO) and membrane bioreactor (MBR) and reuse.
Membrane Master Class Part I
The AMTA-AWWA Membrane Master Class series is a six-part program aimed at addressing current trends and best practices in the development and implementation of membrane technologies. Each session includes recognized experts and in-depth discussions on new directions in membrane research, system design and operation. View all six master class sessions on-demand for a complete overview of today’s emerging membrane standards.
Enhanced Recovery of NF/RO Systems
Recognizing the need to build institutional knowledge about the expanding array of options, AMTA convened a six-part educational series focusing on enhanced recovery strategies for NF/RO systems. The series is grouped by general technological approach, with each of the six sessions featuring technology providers discussing their respective enhanced recovery solutions, along with a moderator-facilitated Q&A session. View the series on-demand to gain a leading edge understanding of this new wave of NF/RO innovation.
Membrane Plant Response and Preparedness for Pandemics
Continuing to provide clean water during a pandemic is critical to the health of a community. A panel of membrane plant utility managers cover planning processes and response to COVID-19, including the impact to operations, staffing, and maintenance activities, and lessons learned.
