Training & Seminars

For 25 years, EBS has provided basic and advanced AST and ASB training for industrial engineers and operators. Our in-house staff and other experts in the field, address biological wastewater treatment principles and proceed to the advanced concepts of monitoring, optimizing, and troubleshooting industrial wastewater systems.


Health and Safety

We take the safety of our guest seriously. Seating and spaces are limited. All attendees and personnel must be vaccinated.

Industrial Aerated Stabilization Basin
Wastewater Seminar

October 12-14, 2021
Mandeville, LA
 
Register for Aerated Stabilization Basin
 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the eight critical growth pressures that control biological treatment efficiency and the process controls available to help keep the system at optimum operating condition.
  • Utilize microscopic examinations and the maturity index rating to quantify the biological health and identify key biological components that indicate system distress.
  • Quickly address problems before an upset turns into a permit violation.
  • Develop insight on advanced problem resolution through instruction and demonstration of laboratory techniques by EBS scientists using actual wastewater samples.
  • Discover tools and strategies to proactively monitor and manage system health under changing conditions.
