R&D and Innovation in the Water Sector
Drinking Water Distribution Systems and Alternative Water Resources
(UK-SG Water Webinar Series #1 of 3)
Bringing together academics and industry members from both countries, this water webinar series aims to address problems relating to the water cycle, from source to tap, and expound on the innovations that have been developed to combat these issues.
In the first of three joint water webinars, this webinar will focus on biofilms in the water distribution systems and membrane development for reverse osmosis (RO).
This is a joint event from the National Biofilms Innovation Centre (NBIC), Singapore National Biofilm Consortium (SNBC), Singapore Membrane Consortium (SGMEM) and Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE).
Who should attend?
Academic and water industry members from both Singapore and the UK, also industry members who are interested in translating their technology into the water sector and wish to learn more about the problems they face and what any potential solution would have to look like.
This event will give a snapshot into the issues caused by biofilms in water distribution and the research that has been carried out to combat them. There will be opportunities to ask the speakers questions and follow up with additional networking after the event. The second webinar of this series will focus on wastewater treatment, while the third will be on reservoir management. Attendance of all three events will give a good level of understanding to those new to the sector.
