Peter Hillis (AECOM) and David Greeves (Barwon Water)
John Connell Auditorium, 21 Bedford Street, North Melbourne
Wastewater treatment consumes huge amounts of energy and contributes to some of the nation’s largest greenhouse gas footprints. As populations increase in Australia, daily flow wastewater volumes are increasing resulting in greater energy use in treatment processes. Increasing sludge end products is also becoming a trickier issue for water authorities to manage. How can engineers manage this sustainably and innovatively?
Peter Hillis (Technical Director Water and Wastewater, AECOM) will present on energy neutrality in wastewater treatment. With 35 years of industry experience and author of numerous technical publications, Peter specialises in water treatment process design, membrane technology for water and wastewater treatment, research and development and pilot plant investigations.
David Greaves (Coordinator of Water Reclamation Plants, Barwon Water) will present on Barwon Water’s biosolids plant in Black Rock. The biosolids drying project was named a finalist in the United Nations Association of Australia World Environment Day Awards. This innovative project provides a sustainable solution to manage biosolids.
