WEF announces 2022 Innovations in Process Engineering call for abstracts

Oct. 22, 2021
The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is calling the water sector’s thought-leaders and experts to share their knowledge at the Innovations in Process Engineering Conference 2022.

In its second year, the Innovations in Process Engineering Conference serves as a cutting-edge showcase for introducing and discussing innovations and new practices for water resource recovery facilities. The target audience includes researchers and practitioners energized in leading the discussion and implementation of technical development in the water sector.

Potential speakers are invited to submit an abstract for podium presentation, interactive session or workshop. You can submit abstracts online only by visiting www.wef.org/processengineering. Abstracts must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. eastern on November 2, 2021, for consideration.

Examples of topics that are considered include, but are not limited to:

Developments in design and operation of treatment processes including new strategies, tools, and technologies: 

  • Nutrient removal and recovery       
  • Balancing and optimizing carbon management       
  • Enhancing secondary treatment, including densification, ballasted processes, and membranes       
  • Sedimentation and separation processes       
  • Contaminants of emerging concern and associated treatment means       
  • Process aeration and mixing systems       
  • Alternative disinfectants and improved disinfection control       
  • Digestion – pretreatment, post-treatment, control, co-digestion       
  • Digester gas treatment technologies     
  • Optimizing thickening and dewatering processes     
  • Advances in side-stream treatment     
  • Technologies for potable and non-potable reuse     
  • Energy saving/conservation technologies 
  • Novel approaches for treatment and resource recovery  Developments in design and operating tools and monitoring:     
  • Advances in process control systems and emerging sensor-based and data analytics-based controls     
  • Advances in process, hydraulic, data, and CFD modeling and non-traditional ways of using traditional models     
  • Understanding, monitoring, and selecting for beneficial microbial communities

Submit your abstract to contribute to the #WEFProcessEng program and plan to join other leaders as they talk about advancements in the water sector.
