Joe Cleary to Present two lectures one on Industrial Water Reuse and the second on Trends in the Pharmaceutical Industry at Manhattan College.

Joe Cleary, P.E., BCEE (New Jersey) will present on both Industrial Water Reuse and Pharmaceutical Industry Trends to graduate students in Dr. Mabbudoor Choudary's seminar class, Emerging Issues in Environmental Engineering and Public Health, at Manhattan College on at 6:30 p.m. EDT on April 21, 2022.

Joe Cleary is a Senior Environmental Engineer based in New Jersey with more than 48 years of experience focused on industrial wastewater, water reuse, energy recovery from wastewater, and the treatment of emerging contaminates including pharmaceuticals and per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).

In addition, Joe advances the state of the practice, leading and participating in workshops and publishing scholarly articles. He recently contributed to WEF's new book "Industrial Water Reclamation and Reuse to Minimize Liquid Discharge." Joe received the Water Environment Federation Industrial Water Quality Lifetime Achievement Award and the Heukelekian Award for Outstanding Contribution in Industrial Waste Control from the NJWEA. He is a frequent lecturer and an alumnus of Manhattan's Civil and Environmental Engineering Department.

Joe's lecture will focus on his long and distinguished career, addressing topics including industrial water reuse drivers and metrics, project approaches, tools for risk assessment, reuse considerations and quality issues, treatment technologies, and case studies. He will also discuss pharmaceutical industry water and wastewater trends including regarding vaccine production, active pharmaceutical ingredients such as antibiotics, and treatment and water reuse technologies to remove pharmaceutical actives and achieve zero liquid discharge.

Manhattan College's environmental engineering programs provide advanced training in environmental process engineering, water quality assessment modeling, geoenvironmental engineering, and environmental management. Nationally recognized for producing well-prepared environmental engineers, the program dates back to 1939. Six of its alumni have been inducted into the National Academy of Engineering, and it is the alma mater of many engineers working on complex projects that address creation of sustainable environments in New York City.
