Washington DC, DC, April 12, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Water industry thought leaders will outline the macro changes affecting urban water systems at the 2012 BlueTech Forum, a one-day, high-level event featuring innovative technologies in water and wastewater, and thought-provoking perspectives on industry issues, opportunities and challenges.
In the Urban Water Systems for the Future: New Models and Macro Trends panel, George Tchobanoglous, PhD, PE, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, UC Davis, and Dr. Glen Daigger, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for CH2M Hill and IWA President will provide insights into the macro changes affecting urban water systems, the water technology market, and water system design and development.
Both Tchobanoglous, author of the leading manual for design, Metcalfe and Eddy and Daigger, CTO of one of the leading engineering firms will speak to how urban water systems of the future will be different than water systems of the last century. New technologies may likely include decentralized treatment and underground aquifer storage, direct potable re-use, nutrient recovery and alternatives to aerobic biological treatment.
Presented by O2 Environmental under the leadership of CEO Paul O’Callaghan, the BlueTech Forum is The industry event that brings together water industry leaders, tech professionals, investors, and start-ups to address the development, financing and commercialization of innovative water technologies. This year’s impressive group of speakers and panelists will address emerging markets, new technology solutions, new models, and water in the green building arena.
The BlueTech Forum Technology Showcase, a differentiating feature of water tech events, showcases companies with disruptive ideas and strong go-to-market strategies. Company CEOs will outline their technology, target market, business strategy and company stage (e.g., alternative desalination; oil and gas industry water treatment technologies; energy and resources from water; bottom of the pyramid technologies, agricultural water/wastewater treatment; and biotechnology and IT solutions applied to water/stormwater).
