Overview

Please note, This instructor-led course has specific dates and times:
This course is held online over 3 days on the following schedule (All times in Eastern Time Zone):

9:30 am to 5:30 pm Eastern (Will include the usual breaks)

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Develop conceptual models for the interaction of environmental aspects of a project
  • Apply prevention and control techniques with a basic understanding of the emission formation process
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of control alternatives in the project context
  • Reduce cost by using the critical points of inspecting an emission control system for compliance with the required standards
  • Use effective methods for the selection of emission reduction and control technologies

Description:
Environmental engineering focuses on protecting the environment by reducing waste and pollution and is dedicated to improving environmental conditions through remediation. It is concerned with cleaning up contamination as well as managing environmental systems and hazardous wastes. Project and facility personnel may be called on to assess potential impacts and outcomes for a wide variety of projects. While in many cases organizations seek expert technical or legal assistance, it is important for all staff to have a conceptual understanding of the issues that may arise.

This seminar brings together many of these concepts in a practical approach to provide you with an understanding of environmental issues and mitigation methods.

Course Outline:

  • Climate and climate change
  • Quantification: methods and methodologies
  • Water and wastewater
  • Air and waste management
  • Land use and remediation
  • Waste management
  • Case studies

Who Should Attend:
Project Managers • Engineering Consultants • Facilities and Plant personnel • EHS Managers and staff • Facility Operators • Regulatory personnel

Instructor

Brian Sulley

Brian is a Technical Director and Principal at RWDI, specializing in air quality emissions and dispersion modelling work as well as his chemical process quantitative risk analysis. Brian’s experience includes heavy industry such as mining, aggregate extraction, hot mix asphalt production, cement plants, pulp and paper mills, petrochemical facilities, and automotive production, through to institutional facilities such as hospitals and universities. Brian’s experience in chemical process quantitative risk analysis spans his work with his previous employer in the chemical process industry and with RWDI. His work in chemical process engineering provides a strong foundation for both his air quality and risk assessment work.

Brian sits on the Board of the Ontario Section of the Air & Waste Management Association and is an active member with the Ontario Environmental Industry Association. Brian also sits on the Environment Committee of the Ontario Stone Sand and Gravel Association, providing guidance and training to members on fugitive dust management and control and regulatory compliance requirements.

In addition to working directly with clients to meet air quality objectives and comply with regulations, Brian acts as a technical lead for RWDI’s Air Quality modelling group, coaching and mentoring scientists and engineers across Canada at work on a range of emissions inventory, monitoring and modelling projects.
