UW to Host Distinguished Environmental Engineering Lecture

September 1, 2009
Mark M. Benjamin of the University of Washington is the 2009-2010 Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors distinguished lecturer.

A national expert in the areas of membrane processes and water chemistry will give the 2009-2010 Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors (AEESP) Distinguished Lecture Wednesday, Sept. 9, at noon in Room 310 of the University of Wyoming Classroom Building.

University of Washington Professor Mark M. Benjamin will discuss "Micro-Granular Adsorptive Membrane Filtration: A Whole New World of Treatment Technologies?" during the lecture, hosted by the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering in the UW College of Engineering and Applied Science. He will describe how his research team has used adsorption to address the problem of membrane fouling in water and wastewater systems.

Benjamin's research interests include natural organic matter chemistry and behavior in water treatment systems, membrane-based technologies for water and wastewater treatment, removal of metals from water and formation of disinfection by-products. He is author of the widely used textbook, "Water Chemistry," published by McGraw-Hill.

A professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Washington, Benjamin received a B.S. degree in chemical engineering from Carnegie-Mellon University, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in chemical and civil engineering from Stanford University.
