  15. Sue

    Im looking to find a gift with a difference for my husband and he loves all documentaries on the big bang etc. Can you advise me where to start looking and also let me know if you ever get over to the NE of England with your public lectures. Thanks for your time.
    Sue

  16. cormac

    Hi Sue, it’s a good question – I’m sure there are plenty of good documentaries but I’ll have to do a bit of a search for one…I imagine Carl Sagan has some great ones..

  23. Thanks for the time and effort put in. There are indeed a lot of information that can be extracted from the seminar. I would gladly help out in areas related to wastewater engineering, system design, membrane separator, anaerobic digester, recovery well, leachate control and topics related to effluent toxicity.
