This is a shout out for the IEM. My Technical Division will be  hosting a seminar on the 9th July, 2012. It'll start at 9:00 and is worth 7 CPD hours.
The fluctuation of effluent quality is always a challenge for industrial wastewater treatment. Wastewater analysis conducted by competent personnel is very important to provide accurate characteristics of the effluent so that the actual condition of the treatment efficiency can be evaluated effectively. In practice, precise and consistent measurement is sometimes difficult to obtain and is mainly due to the lack of knowledge and experience in analysis for most cases.
The workshop on "Industrial Wastewater Analysis" is aimed to help in capacity building and to build confidence in industrial wastewater monitoring and analysis. Technicians, engineers, chemists, scientists and researchers who work in water and wastewater related areas are greatly welcome. The objective of this workshop is to provide knowledge, introductory training and basic skills on industrial wastewater analysis through lectures and discussion. Some simple hands-on demonstration will be arranged during the workshop.
Ir. Assoc. Prof. Dr Chong Mei Fong obtained her BEng (Chemical) at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) and her PhD at Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM). She received several "Sanggar Sanjung" awards for publications with journals of high impact factor. She joined The University of Nottingham, Malaysia Campus as an Assistant Professor to start her professional career. In 2009, she worked as a visiting scholar to Chung Yuan Christian University (CYCU), Taiwan. In the same year, the WaterInno Award gold medal was conferred on her for her outstanding works on wastewater treatment.
