NOLASCO & Assoc. Inc. developed
for the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro a training
course. The course was delivered to the faculty of the
School of Sanitary and Environmental Engineering (Escola
Politécnica de Ingeniería Sanitaria, Departamento
de Recursos Hídricos e Meio Ambiente). The course
focused on the use of mathematical models for dynamic
simulation of municipal and industrial wastewater treatment
processes. Engineering and operations managers of the
public water utilities for the cities of Sao Paulo,
Rio de Janeiro y Brasilia also attended this 2-day course.
Aguas Andinas, the private utility that provides water
and wastewater services to Santiago de Chile and the Greater
Santiago area retained NOLASCO & Assoc. Inc.
to develop and deliver a training course on the use of
BioWinTM, a software for simulation of wastewater
treatment plants. This simulator has already been used
for modelling three large wastewater treatment plants
operated by Aguas Andinas: La Farfana (8.8 m3/s), El Trebal
(4.4 m3/s) y Los Nogales (to be operational by 2009, 6.6
Daniel A. Nolasco, President of NOLASCO &
Assoc. Inc., developed and delivered one-day
