9th World Congress on Aluminium



As effluent treatment and resource conservation are not considered to be core functions related to production, managers often do not devote the time or effort to research the subject. Consequently money is wasted, risks are taken, rules are broken and opportunities to reduce operational costs through resource conservation are missed.

These seminars address a wide range of issues related to effluent treatment and resource conservation, putting all the right people together in the right place at the right time.  

From operators who are in a position to use in-house facilities to effect necessary changes, to those that  simply want to appreciate the issues clearly, this course is tailor made to address all the important aspects.

Seminar 1 is also Session 4 of our revised Electroplating Theory and Practice course, and the follow on Seminar 2 follows is scheduled 28 days later. Click here to learn more ….
