Zakir Hirani is a licensed Process Engineer with expertise in physiochemical and biological treatment of water, wastewater and produced water in the municipal and oil and gas sectors.  He is currently based in Pasadena, CA where he is Stantec’s Lead Water Reuse Engineer. He is experienced in several aspects of water and wastewater treatment including applied research, bench and pilot studies, conceptual process design and modeling, detailed design, engineering services during construction, start-up/commissioning and process troubleshooting.  His design experience covers a range of processes which may be applied to water reuse including microfiltration and ultrafiltration (MF/UF), membrane bioreactors (MBR), reverse osmosis (RO), ozone, ultra-violet disinfection (UV), advanced oxidation processes (UV/H2O2 and Ozone/H2O2), ion-exchange and thermal desalination processes.  Some of the AWT projects that he has been involved with include City of San Diego’s AWT Facility at North City Water Reclamation Plant, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California’s AWT Facility at Joint Water Pollution Control Plant, and City of Los Angeles’ AWT Facility at the Hyperion WWTP.
