According to the thesis supervisor, Nur Aini Mohd Arish @ Arshad, this study involved designing and producing a garbage trap that can be used to collect gross pollutants found in drains as an early stage of pollution prevention. This created trash can be varied for the adjustment of the drainage with multiple widths and has two filters with different sizes of holes. This garbage trap also has a Raspberry Pi system to help garbage collection by sending a message telling the user to collect trapped garbage when this action is needed.

Seminar Room, FKAAS UTHM
Participants: UTHM students
Description: The talk was delivered by Khairul Effendy Tusam, Chief Executive Officer of Rainhill Water Services on 28th April 2019 at FKAAS Seminar Room. This program is a collaboration program between Micropollutant Research Centre with Rainhill Services Sdn. Bhd. Rainhill Water Services Sdn.

The talk was started with an introduction to what Rainhill Water Services is, what they do an overview of a typical water supply system in Malaysia. According to Khairul Effendy Tusam, the water system might be different for each country and the focus of the talk was only on a typical water supply system in Malaysia.
They have also done a water partnership water program called a twinning program whereby the program is funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB). In this program, they will choose a mentor water operator. Their venture also includes some overseas contracts. From the previous activity they have done (PenaW), it has saved up to 500 million liters per day (500 ml). 1 million liters is equal to 1,000 m3 which means 500 million liters will be equal to 500,000 m3 per day. In Malaysia, our regular consumption of each household is 1m3 per day. So basically 500,000 m3 is enough to supply 500,000 houses. It was a good and resourceful talk since it has highlighted a very important component of the water supply system.
