Evoqua Participates in White House Roundtable on Water Innovation

Washington, DC and Pittsburgh, PA - December 15, 2015

Pittsburgh-based Evoqua Water Technologies today participated in The White House Roundtable on Water Innovation.  The White House Roundtable gathered leading minds in the world of water to discuss and challenge stakeholders on how to plan, efficiently use, and develop new supplies of clean water, vital to ensuring our nation’s resilience to water supply shortages, and increase innovation and investments in water technologies.

Evoqua was invited to the event to discuss its patented Nexed™ electrochemicaldesalination module technology.  Evoqua's Nexed™ module technology provides a variety of features that can reduce energy costs by as much as 30 percent with the potential for even more.  In addition, the new technology can help lower costs and facility footprint.

Earlier today, Evoqua announced that the Public Utility Board (PUB), Singapore's national water agency, will partner with Evoqua and its technology to build a desalination plant in Tuas, Singapore capable of producing 500,000 gallons of desalinated seawater per day.  Evoqua will design and construct an adjacent one million gallon/day (feed) plant with the planning phase beginning this month.

"Innovation is part of our DNA dating back more than 100 years when one the founders of one of our businesses - Wallace & Tiernan - invented the process to disinfect drinking water using chlorine and filtration," said Ron Keating, Evoqua Chief Executive Officer.  "Life Magazine later cited the invention as 'probably the most significant public health advancement of the millennium' for helping to save countless lives.  We are proud to participate in forums such as these and appreciate the White House's work to help spur the dialogue to protect the world's most fundamental resource - water."
