Watch: Innovation in Wastewater Treatment Webinar

Bringing together academics and industry members from the UK and Singapore, the ‘R&D and Innovation in the Water Sector’  webinar series aims to address problems relating to the water cycle, from source to tap, and expand on the innovations that have been developed to combat these issues.

This is a joint series 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).

The second webinar focused on tackling industrial and greasy wastewater and also using ecological theory to evaluate microbial process performance. Additionally, we considered innovations in wastewater treatment. Recordings of all of the talks are available to watch on this page. Slides from three of the presentations are also available to download below.
