The Water Environment & Reuse Foundation (WE&RF) is seeking cutting-edge water reuse and desalination technologies to improve treatment and operations at municipal and industrial facilities. Proposers with innovative technologies and processes that can provide improvements in performance, cost, and operations (e.g., maintenance, compliance, sustainability, etc.) over conventional approaches are encouraged to apply to the Leaders Innovation Forum for Technology (LIFT), a joint Water Environment Federation and WE&RF initiative. Technology Scan proposers must highlight key aspects of their technology or process for review by a panel of experts through LIFT.
All accepted proposers will be given an opportunity to present their technology to utilities, consultants, and other WE&RF subscribers. Those technologies may also be included in the LIFT Link online technology innovation and collaboration platform. Subsequent opportunities may develop around research, piloting, validation, and early adoption of the technology. Selected proposers may also be invited to join LIFT representatives at upcoming industry events and workshops on this topic. See application instructions for a complete list of benefits.
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
Submissions are due no later than 5:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, November 15, 2017. There is no cost to apply. To apply, please visit LIFT Link and click the Apply button. If you need to create a WE&RF account, do so here. Technologies in other areas will be accepted, and are encouraged. For more information, contact WE&RF Technology and Innovation Manager Aaron Fisher.
