In the last decade, traces of pharmaceuticals, Personal Care Products (PPCPs) and Endocrine Disrupting Compounds (EDCs) were reported in water cycle, including surface waters, wastewater, groundwater and drinking water. These compounds were referred to as Chemicals of Emerging Concern. Advances in analytical technology have been a key factor driving their increased detection. Ozone & Ozone based Advanced Oxidation Processes have been recognized as the best technologies to remove these contaminants. Removal of Cyanotoxins from Algal Blooms is another success of ozone applications.
- The course introduce case studies in the drinking water industry to investigate the efficacy of water treatment technologies to improve water quality with the focus on the ability of Ozone to resolve new challenges in drinking water quality
Professionals working in the water treatment industry (Engineers, Consultants, Graduate students, Operators, Technologists, etc.) who use ozone in their water treatment processes, or are in the process of implementing Ozone for drinking water treatment.
Dr. Jasim received his B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering from Baghdad University, his M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Wales Swansea in the UK. He is a registered professional engineer in Ontario and in British Columbia.
Dr. Jasim serves as Manager, Utilities for the City of White Rock. He started the work to investigate and research the technologies for the new water treatment plants and initiated the discussion with the Res’eau-WaterNet, University of British Columbia, which led to signing the agreement to conduct the studies required for the design of the new water treatment plant for the removal of Arsenic and Manganese.
Dr. Jasim was elected as the “President Elect” for the International Ozone Association.
He served as the Director, Great Lakes Regional Office-International Joint Commission (IJC), dealing with Water Quality issue in the Great Lakes.
Dr. Jasim was the Founding CEO for the Walkerton Clean Centre. He managed the establishment of the Centre to be the leading training provider in Ontario.
He served as Director, Water Quality & Production for the Windsor Utilities Commission, Windsor, ON, Canada. He proposed a implemented the first Ozone as a Primary Disinfectant, the first application of that size and application in the Province of Ontario, which was followed by other cities.
Dr. Jasim is past President of the Ontario Water Works Association; Past President of the International Ozone Association-Pan American Group (IOA-PAG); a member of the Board of Directors of the International Ozone Association, serves on the Editorial Board of Ozone Science & Engineering Journal and the Editorial Board for Water Process Engineering Journal.
Dr. Jasim serves as Adjunct Professor at the University of Windsor since 1996.
Received many International and National awards for his work.
