Abdul Mohammed has a Master’s degree in Civil/Environmental Engineering from the University of Alberta. With over 27 years of experience as a Civil/Environmental engineer, specializing in municipal and industrial sectors, he has led teams of professionals in implementing $300M in capital upgrades over the last 20 years in planning, design, and construction at the Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant. The plant upgrades included conversion of activated sludge process to biological nutrient removal (BNR); installation of UV disinfection facility; construction of enhanced primary treatment (EPT) clarifiers for CSO control; and a membrane filtration facility for water reuse at Suncor's refinery. Abdul was also responsible for Biosolids Management, which included land application and composting processes for the Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant. He has extensive experience with project management tools such as risk analysis, value engineering, constructability review, and process HAZOP techniques. He is also the project manager in charge of our water reuse technology Certification (CSA B128.3) and for cold weather testing for other Certifying Bodies, both in Canada and the US.

Mr. Mohammed has been involved with a number of research initiatives, such as:

  • Integrated Fixed Film Activated Sludge (IFAS) system for secondary treatment capacity increase;
  • High ammonia waste stream treatment using anammox processes;
  • Enhanced Primary Treatment and Disinfection for combined sewer overflow (CSO) for wet weather treatment;
  • Membrane bioreactor research;
  • Waster reuse research;
  • Ammonia reduction project with ENPAR Technology;
  • Reverse osmosis project for GE Technologies
  • Pilot testing and commercial-scale testing and development of the Struvite removal process in collaboration with Ostara - Technology and the University of British Columbia; and
  • Micro-turbine evaluation for co-generation with Ingersoll-Rand.
