I got it!

Mr Matthew Smyth

Associate Technical Director

Matt’s expertise lies in optimising domestic and industrial wastewater treatment plants to meet stringent discharge consent criteria whilst minimising operating and capital upgrade costs.  His work in the brewing, distilling, pharmaceutical and paper sectors has seen him troubleshoot a range of technologies including sequencing batch reactors, membrane bioreactors, plus traditional activated sludge plants suffering from filamentous bulking.  In the domestic sector he has worked with all of the water companies, highlights include developing a new design and asset standard for selectors to enhance activated sludge settlement, optimising sludge age control to achieve/avoid biological nutrient removal and developing chemical dosing strategies to enhance lamella primary and secondary treatment.  Matt has delivered the course jointly with Nigel Horan since 2009 from Aqua Enviro’s Wakefield base and also at client premises throughout the UK.
