EEI CEO to Present EEI Anammox Process Seminar for Engineers Australia

Environmental Engineers International (EEI) is pleased to announce that Dr Raj Kurup will be the presenter for a special upcoming event hosted by Sustainable Engineering Society WA. Raj will be speaking about the successful retrofit of the EEI-Anammox process for Dardanup Butchering Company's (DBC) Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). The seminar will be held on Wednesday the 20th of June at the Engineers Australia WA Auditorium. Registration is available to anyone, and EA members and students can attend for free. More information can be found at:

Since the implementation of the EEI-Anammox process two years ago, the DBC WWTP has consistently achieved excellent nitrogen removal, without any extra carbon addition. The plant is monitored online for various parameters to ensure its effective operation. The WWTP has achieved over 20% savings in overall electrical power since the implementation of the anammox process. Unlike the European case studies, the DBC WWTP has achieved over 95% TN reduction even during the winter months when the temperature has fallen below 15o degrees Celsius.

Dr Raj Kurup is an internationally reputed and award-winning environmental engineer and project manager with over 25 years of professional experience in various facets of environmental monitoring, water and wastewater treatment engineering, sludge management, odour control and management and nutrient removal technologies. Raj has a long history of providing innovative solutions to challenging problems that are economical, environmentally and socially informed, technically advanced and operationally simple. He was awarded the title of Australia's Most Innovative Engineer in the Consulting Category from Engineers Australia in 2017 for his work in developing EEI's anammox technology, and the WA Water Professional of the Year (2017) from the Australian Water Association.

EEI hope you can attend this exciting event.
