Connect with young and experienced water professionals for an exchange of ideas on the tips and traps of process plant design, commissioning and operations at the next Queensland Branch Technical Event.

Experienced Chemical Engineer, Peter Griffiths, will share his lessons learned of what does and doesn't work in this challenging field and his experiences across a range of projects. Peter will be joined by two Young Water Professionals who will ask all the questions you've ever wanted answers to and invite audience discussion.
