Pynes was built in 1832 in response to the city's cholera outbreak after which it was decided to move Exeter's water source from Exe Street near the city centre to the less polluted Pynes Leat.

    SITE VISIT

    The site visit will take approximately one hour review the processes and plant on site. Attendees must wear sturdy footwear to access the site.

    Geothermal Heat Pumps

    17:30
    19:00

    Speakers: Dave Tucker, WDS Green Energy and Gareth Farr, British Geological Survey

    Venue: Faculty Lecture Theatre, Trevithick Building, Cardiff University

    CIWEM Welsh branch (supported by Geological Society) would like to invite you to attend an evening presentation on Mine Water as an Energy Source for Heat Pumps.

    Synopsis:

    Abandoned mine workings within the South Wales Coalfield are often flooded with groundwater  that has the potential to be a major energy source for heat pumps.  Baseline monitoring of a network of mine water discharges from abandoned mines has been undertaken by the British Geological Survey proving temperatures up to 19˚C at the point of discharge at the surface. Calculations by Cardiff University has shown there is some 65MW's of heat that could be exploited to meet demands from homes, offices, schools etc across South Wales.

    To demonstrate the use of this valuable energy source WDS Green Energy Ltd have constructed a combined domestic and commercial heat pump project at Crynant near Neath utilising water in the underlying old workings of nearby Cefn Coed Colliery. This project is the first of its kind in the UK and has been undertaken with technical support from theSeren ProjectTeam at Cardiff University, the Coal Authority and NRW, and as heat pumps are one of the renewable energy systems approved by the UK Government under their carbon saving programme, the client is eligible for Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments for 20 years.

    The talk will cover the design of heat pumps in general and how the Crynant project was conceived and developed and the benefits being accrued therefrom both environmentally and financially.

    Cost for the event is FREE and is open to non members. Light refreshments will be available from 5.30pm.  For further details please contact: Tracey Dunford, welsh@ciwem.org

    Environmental Engineering Micro-presentation evening

    17:15
    20:00

    Speakers: Cardiff University PhD students and research assistants

    Venue: Faculty Lecture Theatre, Trevithick Building, The Parade, Cardiff University CF24 3AA

    CIWEM Welsh branch (supported by Cardiff University) would like to invite you to attend an Micro-presentation evening on 'Environmental Engineering', Wednesday 3rd December 2014.

    PhD and research assistants working on environmental, water and modelling topics will each provide a five-minute micro-presentation on their area of interest. These 'elevator pitch' style presentations will provide attendees with a broad appreciation of Cardiff University's environmental research interests.

    This event will help promote greater understanding of Cardiff University's research activities, and provide practitioners with access to cutting-edge research, which should help them in their day-to-day jobs. By developing closer working relationships between academic and industry practitioners will be able to highlight issues of emerging concern and help direct the direction of key research strands going forward. 

    All the speakers are PhD students and research assistants within Cardiff Univeristy's Hydro-environmental Research Centre, the Director of which is Professor Roger Falconer.  Topics covered by the Centre are numerous and varied, and include the proposed Severn Barrage, faecal coliforms in the coastal environment and hydrodynamic modelling of estuarine and coastal waters.

    Cost for the event is FREE and is open to non members. Light refreshments will be available from 5.15pm (for a 5.45pm start).  Please contact: Tracey Dunford, welsh@ciwem.org
