Dynamita folks reunited in SW France during the last week of April. It was great to meet each other again and greet our soon-to-be colleague, Sabrina (announcement to come later). Lots of fun, great food, some kayaking on the Lake of Arjuzanx, a lovely stroll in Bordeaux and crawling atop the great sand dune of Pilat made sure we don't get stranded behind our computers, still we made good progress work-wise as well.
As a result of that, Sumo 22.1 became available for download. For details about the changes in this release, please check out the What’s new in Sumo 22.1 document. This install will replace your existing 22.0 but can coexist with earlier versions (21, 19).

After the first ever and best ever WRRmod conference in Africa in Cape Town, and recognizing the challenges African universities and startups face, Dynamita is pleased to announce the following support package:
To any university accredited and located in Africa - we are pleased to provide free unlimited perpetual licenses for the Sumo process simulation package including Digital Twin capabilities.
Any one- or two-person startup from Africa can claim a one year license of Sumo free of charge in their first year of operation.
This program will stand (at least) for the next ten years, until 2033.
Our hope is that this will result in cleaner environment and less bottled water in Africa. Free and Open source!
January 17, 2023
WRRmod2022+ is soon to start in Stellenbosch, South Africa. We are proud platinum sponsors of this event and wish all participants to enjoy and benefit from the interesting programme. Dynamita is going to be represented in person by Daniel, Dwight and Imre - feel free to have a chat with us at the conference venue.

As 2022 is slowly coming to an end, the Sumo mascot gets cheeky forming snow angels, while the Dynamita Team is preparing to take a refreshing break as well, wishing you Happy Holidays and a delightful 2023.
Stay tuned, we are about to come back with exciting new developments early next year!
October 1st, 2022
We have great news for those who have been eagerly anticipating the release of Sumo 22! Several months of ambitious development by the entire Dynamita Team brought a range of exciting new features to the package (for details, please check out the What’s new in Sumo 22 document). Now it’s your turn: download , install and experience the latest advancements in wastewater process modeling!
And last but not least, let us also invite you to the new Dynamita Sumo Wiki , the home of the complete and continuously updated documentation about Sumo.
September 29, 2022
Many thanks for the licenses! We had a good course and all participants got their plant models done even though they’ve never used Sumo before. Some were so advanced that they even started optimizing their processes 😊 I have used another process modeling programme on the same course before, but must say Sumo’s UI is so much more intuitive that I very much prefer that.

Wastewater process engineers get trained in Sumo22 at our next training session!
This will be the first training introducing Sumo22, a good way to get a head start 😊 A lot of exciting new features and process models. Learn to dynamically model alpha for better aeration design, predict N2O using our greenhouse model, predict sludge dredging in lagoons, perform carbon footprint calculations, develop blower and pump curves, and perform comprehensive energy & cost-saving simulations. And let us not forget to set up a Digital twin and perform urban watershed modeling!
Those interested please check the training flyer for the exact schedule and sign up for the event.

We are proud to be silver sponsors of the upcoming IWA Biofilms 2021 Virtual Conference that will take place between December 6 and 8.
November 5, 2021
The last week of October was a busy one for the Dynamita family. We had most of the team gathered at the HQ in Sigale to finish off the last Sumo 21 training for this year and to discuss future developments, while enjoying the benefits of the local climate and hospitality.
It was very nice to meet again in person after more than a year and a half of physical isolation! And hey, look at those fancy personalized T-shirts :)
August 27, 2021
Heads up in Asia and Down Under! This October, Dynamita is going hold a Sumo 21 interactive training course that better suits your time zones. Those interested please check the training flyer for the exact schedule and sign up for the event using the registration link.

We will miss meeting you folks at the WRRmod 2021 in person, as the event is going virtual.
Nevertheless, we believe in sustaining full support for this exciting conference regardless of being an online gathering. So come and peek into the latest developments of the industry, including presentations about the cool new features of Sumo 21, which we also believe to be above all expectations...

Hung already provided us valuable experience as a new Sumo user, so that we could improve Sumo 21 before its official release. He will also help us in Sumo translation into Vietnamese (hopefully he still remembers some Vietnamese!), weather data collection, Sumo models testing...etc. As a young graduate, we hope that the internship time with us will help Hung gain useful experience for his career development.
May 31, 2021
The new edition of Sumo is here, packed with numerous exciting new features and innovation (for details, please see the What’s new in Sumo 21 document). We had lots of fun developing the newest reference point of wastewater process modeling, so don't hesitate and check out Sumo 21 for yourself. Bet you'll love it!
And by the way, we have a new webpage, too.
April 27, 2021
Dynamita just got featured among the top France-based startups in the environmental engineering industry. Nice to receive such acknowledgment for our work aiming to innovate the world of process modeling. Keep an eye out, the story just begins to unfold....
April 14, 2021
We had the pleasure of providing the first training with the new and shiny SUMO 21, which is very close to officially take wings and bring new dimensions to the process modeling community.
Let us share some of the feedback we received from the participants:
Opinions like these inspire us to push the limits further…

We're excited and welcome Dwight into our growing and talented group. Looking forward to finally bring the team together again, maybe this fall, not only on Zoom...
December 18, 2020
2020 brought many challenges to everyone's lives. Nevertheless, we were happy to see the Dynamita team grow and strongly hope that the upcoming year will allow all of us to get together more frequently outside of cyberspace as well. Until then, stay safe and have a blessed festive season!
