Peter Dold, Ph.D.
Peter Dold is the president of EnviroSim Associates Ltd., developers of the BioSim and BioWin dynamic wastewater treatment plant simulators. These are being used worldwide by consulting engineering firms, water companies and municipalities as tools to aid in process analysis, design, control and operation. He also is an adjunct professor at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. Dr. Dold is engaged in a range of research projects dealing with wastewater treatment problems and is involved as a consultant in many municipal and industrial projects, including several involving biological nutrient removal (BNR).
After graduating from Chemical Engineering at the University of Cape Town, Peter embarked on a career in environmental engineering. In 1978 he commenced graduate studies at UCT under the supervision of Professor Gerrit Marais, obtaining the Ph.D. degree in 1982. Areas of interest during this period centered on activated sludge process modeling and system control.
In 1983 Peter joined the faculty of the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Cape Town as a senior lecturer. This followed a spell of post-doctoral research with Dr. John Andrews at Rice University, Houston. Until he left Cape Town in 1989, Peter conducted research into various aspects of wastewater treatment jointly with Dr. Marais. Other colleagues in the research team included Drs. George Ekama, Mark Wentzel and Dick Loewenthal. The research endeavors of the University of Cape Town Group during this time addressed a range of municipal and industrial wastewater treatment problems relating to activated sludge treatment systems (particularly those designed for nutrient removal), anaerobic systems and aspects of process control. A major focus of Dr. Dold's research was mathematical modeling of activated sludge systems. Between 1983 and 1987 he was actively involved in development of the well-known IAWPRC activated sludge model.
Peter Dold joined McMaster University in 1989 as an NSERC Industrial Research Chair in Environmental Systems Engineering. He continues to expand his research interests in wastewater treatment. Since 1997 Peter has maintained a part-time position at McMaster, and continues to supervise graduate students working on a range of projects with particular emphasis on biological nitrogen and phosphorus removal activated sludge systems. A milestone has been development of a general mathematical model for systems incorporating organics removal, nitrification, denitrification and biological phosphorus removal. This was the first comprehensive mechanistic kinetic model of this type. Dr. Dold is the author or co-author of more than a hundred research papers and comprehensive research reports.
Dr. Dold is actively involved in a range of consulting activities in Europe, Australia and North America, with an emphasis on full-scale biological nutrient removal systems analysis and design. He has hands-on experience in the installation of computer control systems at full-scale and has been consulted as a technical expert in legal matters relating to phosphorus removal wastewater treatment systems.
Christopher Bye, Ph.D., P.Eng.
Vice-President of Software
Chris Bye is the Vice-President of Software with EnviroSim Associates Ltd. Dr. Bye has over 20 years of experience in wastewater treatment including process design and equipment selection, full-plant modeling and model development for biological nutrient removal, and wastewater characterization and kinetic studies.
After graduating from Civil Engineering at McMaster University, Chris began a career in environmental engineering. In 1994 he commenced graduate studies at McMaster under the supervision of Professor Peter Dold, obtaining the Ph.D. degree in 2000. Areas of interest during this period centered on activated sludge settleability and secondary settling tank modeling.
Dr. Bye has been with EnviroSim Associates Ltd. since 1998. Chris leads and supports consulting projects for analyzing process options for design, assessment of process capacity, analysis of capacity limitations and development of model-based tools for specific plants. During his time with EnviroSim, Chris has been actively involved in the development and application of the latest version of the BioWin wastewater treatment process simulator. Dr. Bye also has been involved in the development of rapid methods for measurement of nitrifier maximum specific growth rate. In addition, Chris participates in the development and delivery of EnviroSim training courses.
Mark Fairlamb, M.Eng.
Lead Software Developer
Mark Fairlamb is a Senior Process Engineer with EnviroSim Associates Ltd. Mark graduated in Chemical Engineering from the University of Cape Town. In 1991, Mark received his Masters in Environmental Systems Engineering from McMaster. His graduate research, conducted under the supervision of Dr. Peter Dold, involved a study of mass transfer fundamentals in diffused air wastewater treatment systems. This provided the basis for oxygen transfer modeling in the BioWin simulator. Mr. Fairlamb coordinates software development at EnviroSim.
In 1991, Mark began his career with EnviroSim, where he manages and coordinates model and software development for the BioWin and Petwin simulators.
Mark also has extensive experience in the modeling, design and analysis of wastewater treatment processes, including activated sludge (with biological nutrient removal), oxygen mass transfer, primary and secondary settling processes. He has provided services in process modeling, analysis, and design for nitrification and biological nutrient removal plants in the U.S., New Zealand, and Australia.
Mark has been involved the development of custom real-time control systems and several data acquisition and analysis software projects.
Robert Walker, B.Eng.
Robert Walker graduated with a B.Eng. in Software Engineering from McMaster University in 2005. He joined EnviroSim soon after, and has been developing BioWin, BioWin Controller, and a variety of other software tools ever since. Rob specializes in development and simulation of process control strategies.
Gillian Burger, MASc., P.Eng.
Gillian Burger graduated from McGill University in 2006 with a Bachelor of Civil Engineering and a minor in Environmental Engineering. She then joined Golder Associates in Vancouver as a water resources engineer in the mining waste group. Gillian subsequently relocated with Golder to Johannesburg, South Africa, where she worked as a civil engineer on mine water treatment projects. Following this, Gillian joined Aurecon where she was responsible for the civil and process design of several new and upgraded municipal wastewater treatment plants in Swaziland, Mozambique, Lesotho and South Africa. While with Aurecon, Gillian gained 6 months of site engineering experience at the upgrade of a biological nutrient removal plant in Pretoria, South Africa.
Gillian returned to Canada in 2010 and obtained a Master of Applied Science degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Waterloo in 2012. During this degree, she held the NSERC Graduate Scholarship and Ontario Graduate Scholarship. For her Master’s thesis, Gillian investigated the impacts of thermal pretreatment on activated sludge and developed a pretreatment model. Ms. Burger’s paper based on this work was published in Water Research. During her degree, Gillian also worked as a teaching assistant for two undergraduate engineering courses on wastewater treatment and water quality.
Gillian joined EnviroSim Associates as a process modelling engineer-in-training in January 2013. At EnviroSim, Gillian designs and carries out laboratory experiments to assess the biological nutrient removal capacity of various wastewater treatment plants (phosphorous-release tests, specific nitrification rate tests, denitrification rate tests, etc.). Gillian is also involved in the testing and modelling of wastewater characterization and kinetic studies. Gillian supports consulting projects to analyse process options and assess process capacity. Ms. Burger provides software support to clients, participates in the delivery of EnviroSim training courses and assists with the development of model extensions.
