Good bye and bonne chance, Erika!

December 25, 2017

With the start of the new year Erika is leaving Dynamita to meet new challenges, to complete a PhD with prof. Mathieu Sperandio in INSA Toulouse. It was a pleasure working with you Erika, and we’re happy that Dynamita proved to be a solid stepping stone to complete your MSc. and to be accepted into such a prestigious school. The team and I am sure all clients you had contact with will miss you and we’re looking forward to continued cooperation with the new knowledge that you will surely uncover concerning the interaction between biological and chemical phosphorus removal.

Dynamita is happy to be in such a good company

Dynamita team is growing - again

November 20, 2015

Dynamita is pleased to announce that Tanush Wadhawan and Hélène Hauduc has joined our team.

Tanush and Hélène bring a wealth of modeling and wastewater process experience to the Dynamita team. Tanush has a PhD from North Dakota state University, he did his Postdoc research at DCWater where led the biosolids research team, focusing on the thermal hydrolysis and codigestion processes. Tanush has experience with high-rate processes, industrial treatment and organic nitrogen removal as well. Tanush is based in our office in Southern Ontario, Canada.
Hélène defended her PhD on ASM-type model comparison codirected by Irstea (Antony, France) and modelEAU (Université Laval, Québec, Canada) in 2010. She completed a Postdoc and was a teaching assistant in Toulouse at INSA, where she worked on physico-chemical modelling of phosphorus precipitation in municipal and industrial wastewaters. Hélène is based in our Toulouse office in France.

The whole team (Imre, Bernhard, Robert, Zsolt, Erika and Csaba) welcome Tanush and Hélène to the team.

Sumo user’s first experience

September 2, 2013

Robert and Imre: I was able to run SUMO and in fact I did my first simulations. And, yes, within about an hour I am now able to do implement and run models on my own. This is excellent! So far, I very much like what I see! Best, Eberhard.

Strategic partnership with Biopolus

May 5, 2013

Dynamita’s main experience is in treatment of municipal and industrial wastewater in order for safe disposal into the environment. But we believe that the way ahead is energy and valuable material recovery and production(!), i.e. wastewater as a resource, and that this makes a lot of sense as the new vision in the 21st century. Surprise, surprise – there are other companies working towards the same goal. We’re pleased to find a strategic partner in Biopolus (http://www.biopolus.org/news), an innovative enterprise led by an outstanding thinker, István Kenyeres. We’re looking forward to this exciting cooperation with Biopolus.

Strategic partnership with inCTRL

May 1, 2013

Dynamita is happy to announce that in order to provide a wider range of services, we formed a strategic partnership with inCTRL, Canada, well-known specialists in instrumentation, monitoring and control. Dynamita and inCTRL will join forces in projects were Dynamita’s process model expertise and inCTRL’s instrumentation and control background will lead to the best model driven solutions for enhancing the control capabilities and ultimately the performance of utilities at the best possible cost/benefit ratio. See http://www.inctrl.ca/team.

[1/13/2013 7:56:45 PM] Bruce Johnson: boy imre… pretty slow… 9 seconds a day for a fully dynamic feed and 72 bioreactors split into 4 parallel trains. Can’t you do any better than that? :O

[1/13/2013 8:00:21 PM] Imre Takacs: give me heart attacks!

[1/13/2013 8:00:35 PM] Bruce Johnson: LOL!!!!

[1/13/2013 8:00:49 PM] Bruce Johnson: very sweet imre

[1/13/2013 8:02:05 PM] Imre Takacs: great. I am going to relay this to the guys because they heard so much about speed from me, they are totally fed up

[1/13/2013 8:04:01 PM] Bruce Johnson: please do! this is absolutely incredible how quick it is.

The model has 105 state variables including DO modelling.
