Water has been an existential issue for Singapore and the city-state has been tenaciously working over the years to secure a safe, resilient, and sustainable supply. Wastewater is also termed as recycled water in Singapore, alluding to the aim for water to be cleaned and reused indefinitely.

While Denmark has been blessed with abundant groundwater, it has had its fair share of challenges related to water and resources and has over the years built up key expertise, knowledge, and innovation for water resource recovery. Resource recovery is today considered a key stronghold of Denmark. Through international collaborations and global knowledge exchange, Denmark has continued building up key capabilities in this space.

We are pleased to invite you to join an exciting webinar that will bring together key experts and practitioners from the public sector and industry to discuss the next phase of innovation within water resource recovery, and also touch on the related issue of digitalization of resource recovery systems and processes.
