New one day Compact Effluent Treatment Seminars starting now!

Effluent Treatment remains a subject that all metal finishers rate as a concern. Increasing surveillance by authorities along with steep fines for transgressors has made it imperative that companies dedicate more attention to the subject. The seminars address the most important issues related to effluent treatment and resource conservation, putting the right people together in the right place at the right time.

These dedicated conferences were originally designed as two day offerings. Experience taught us that the critical issues of most concern can be covered in a compact version of the course in a single day, reducing the cost to the employer. Consequently, as of this year, we are offering this revised compact option. First Seminar in KZN on June 29. Click here for more info.
