3 Things A Top Tier Microbial Expert and A Radio Host Have in Common [Interview]

Microbial expert and radio host. Totally different professionals with totally different expertise.

But hang on a second … what if I tell you that I do know someone who is among the top of the pyramid of microbial science, and also has a good voice and likes to talk? And most importantly, like every human on this planet (including radio hosts), he cares about the basic necessity of civilization – water.

Sounds like an interesting combination for one person, eh? Ok, without further ado, below is a short interview with Pat Whalen, President & CEO of LuminUltra, on Water Online Radio at WEFTEC 2015 (the Water Environment Federation’s Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference).

Let’s take a 10 minutes break with his microbial knowledge, and his attractive tone as well. We’d appreciate it if you could listen to it, like it and share it.

In membrane bioreactors (MBRs), typical MLSS concentrations are even higher (10,000 to 12,000 mg/L). A higher concentration can be advantageous as they allow for smaller aeration tanks while performing the… Read More

This highlights the need for effective surveillance and contact tracing programs, which include identifying and testing asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic individuals, to prevent further spread.
