For this year, the IES Environment and Water Engineering TC and Environmental & Water Technologies Centre of Innovation (EWTCOI) is co-organising the webinar on Emerging Technologies in the Water Sector.


The Environmental & Water Technologies Centre of Innovation (EWTCOI) is an on-going joint collaboration between Enterprise Singapore and Ngee Ann Polytechnic since 2006. For this webinar, IES and the EWTCOI are actively engaging the industry to understand the current challenges and work with companies to develop sustainable solutions that meet their needs. This understanding of the industry challenges has also been the impetus to research for better technologies that can partner with industry. These technologies will be presented in this webinar to highlight some of the emerging technologies for water management.

1. Overview of the EWTCOI Facilities and Services

2. Review of Current Technologies for:

a.Solvent Recovery
b.Wastewater Treatment
c.Oil-Water Separation
