Introduction to BioWin

Setting Up Whole Plant Models

  • 2-day interactive course
  • US$725 per person at our Hamilton, Ontario offices

BioWin is very easy to learn. With the online tutorials and resources in the online help, an engineer only needs a few hours of familiarization. However, the most efficient way to get new users up to speed is through an intensive training course which covers BioWin as well as touches on various process engineering aspects.

Course Information

Course Format

The introductory training course has the following format:

  • Attendees will need to bring their own laptop computers for the hands on sessions, but we will provide copies of BioWin for the duration of the course.
  • Two day (16 hour) course.
  • The course is hands-on and consists of a series of case studies designed to demonstrate BioWin features.
  • The orientation of the case studies leans towards nutrient removal systems, but many of the topics are quite general. An associated focus is wastewater characterization and estimation/measurement of these characteristics as well as nitrification rates.
  • We supply course manuals, a number of spreadsheets used as “tools” and a light lunch on both days.
  • The number of attendees is usually in the range of 10 to 12.
