JOB TITLE: Process Engineer- Biological Process Design Requisition Number: PM1611
Aslan Technologies engineering team has immediate opportunity for a fulltime and experienced biological process engineer to join the Burlington, Ontario office. This is an excellent opportunity for a professional who enjoys working with a growing small company in a fast pace environment and appreciates change, strategic growth and development.
Aslan’s Biological process design team as part of the mechanical engineering design team primarily focuses on water, wastewater and sewage treatment system design and engineering. Some of the key areas of focus are drinking water treatment, wastewater/ sewage treatment and reuse (MBR, SBR, RO, UF, etc.) and assessment of feasibility of biological treatment of selected contaminants as part of our research and development efforts.
The biological design and engineering process group works closely with our municipal and industrial clients for qualification of projects to understand the required treatment or reuse opportunities. The team will then propose the best design considering client’s spec, budget, and operational and maintenance limitations and select the best unbiased membrane or non-membrane based solutions.
Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
Process Design and Applications Engineering
Develop preliminary conceptual to detailed process design of industrial and municipal water and wastewater treatment systems.
Design clarifier systems, sequencing batch reactor’s and membrane systems for ultra-pure processes such as ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis, and membrane bioreactor.
Develop proposals, cost estimation, technical specifications, vendor and contractor prequalification, procurement/tender support and contract administration.
Conduct process evaluation, process optimization, general hydraulics calculations and equipment sizing and selection.
Develop process schematics, PFDs and P&IDs to ensure proper functionality and alignment with project requirements.
When necessary, provide project management support such as planning, scheduling and budgeting.
Liaise with customers, qualify technical calls, RFQs and review client’s and project’s specifications and instrumentation.
Answer technical inquiries from clients, manufacturers, reps and distributors.
Function in leadership role in managing projects, mentoring future growing team and helping to develop new processes.
