PWN Technologies (PWNT) has signed a milestone agreement with the organizers of Singapore International Water Week to be a FoundingSponsor. To be held from 4 to 8 July 2011, Singapore International Water Week 2011 is the global platform for water solutions that brings policymakers, industry leaders, experts and practitioners together to address challenges, showcase technologies, discover opportunities and celebrate achievements in the water world.
Themed ‘Sustainable Water Solutions for a Changing Urban Environment’, the fourth installment of the event will be held from 4 to 8 July 2011, and reinforces Singapore International Water Week’s stature as a platform for solutions to address the latest and most pertinent water issues amidst a rapidly changing world. It also reflects a broader focus beyond urban water solutions and other issues that affect the urban environment such as climate change and the management of watersheds and river basins. The Agreement was signed between Mr. Jonathan Clement, PWNT’s Director of Strategic Business Development, and Mr. Lloyd Tan, Director, Sales and Marketing of Singapore International Water Week 2011.
Says Mr. Jonathan Clement, ‘Singapore International Water Week is one of the most unique water events in the world, bringing a high level of practical knowledge to a wide audience to address the most critical water issues through highly relevant workshops and forums. It is strongly in line with PWN Technologies’ mission to strongly support these activities through the Singapore International Water Week.’
The Agreement is a significant milestone marking PWNT’s deeper involvement in the region as a provider of water treatment technology and solutions, working in close collaboration with the PUB. As a Founding Sponsor, PWN Technologies will be able to leverage more effectively on the Singapore International Water Week as a platform to showcase its technologies, services and products to increase its business reach to the global water community.
Mr Lloyd Tan, Director, Sales and Marketing of Singapore International Water Week 2011, said, “The Singapore International Water Week welcomes like-minded partners who bring the same level of commitment and expertise to the global water industry. With PWNT’s insights and experience in providing practical water solutions, we are confident that the fourth installment of the Singapore International Water Week will once again be able to put forth new innovations that can tackle the water challenges we face in our current urban environment.”
PWNT brings on board many achievements in advancing water treatment practices, including the world’s first wide-scale use of membranes for drinking water, the invention of UV hydrogen peroxide treatment, and pioneering work in the economic application of ceramic membranes for water treatment.
