Water resource recovery facilities are facing new challenges due to changes in wastewater characteristics. In particular, the increased use of surfactant-based products and fats, oils and grease (FOG) has led to the formation of stable emulsions that disrupt wastewater treatment processes. These emulsions are difficult to remove using conventional treatment processes, and they can lead to inefficiency, operational challenges, process upsets and increased operating costs.

Watch this webinar to learn how nanobubble technology is helping solve the challenges posed by surfactants and FOG in wastewater treatment. 

What you will learn:

  • Identify common inhibitory compounds and explain how they disrupt wastewater treatment
  • Understand how to observe the negative impacts of inhibitory compounds in your plant
  • Understand how nanobubble pretreatment addresses these challenges


Andrea White, P.E., Global Director of Water Process Engineering
Andrea has a passion for protecting the environment and has dedicated her career to improving water quality using new and emerging technologies. She has a broad-based knowledge of water and wastewater treatment design, specializing in biological and chemical oxidation processes and gas-to-liquid transfer. In her current role, Andrea leads the Application Engineering team at Moleaer, where her research focuses on developing the science of nanobubbles and their application within the Water-Environment-Food nexus.

John Crisman, Senior Water Process Engineer
John has worked in the water and wastewater industry for 18 years. His experience started in the installation of underground utilities and led to managing operations of a medium-sized sanitary district. John is a California State Water Resources Control Board Grade V and Texas Commission on Environment Quality Class A wastewater treatment plant operator, and he earned his bachelor’s degree in engineering management from Arizona State University. He strives to use his strong problem-solving skills to improve efficiency, reduce costs and ultimately, provide a better product to the customer at a lower cost. Because of his passion for protecting public health and the environment, he pursues emerging technologies to overcome complex process challenges. As part of the Water Process Engineering team, he will work to advance the application of nanobubble technology in water, wastewater and industrial waste treatment.
