Event description

Description

By now, most of us in Singapore would have heard of seawater desalination - its promise of reliable fresh water independent of the whims of climate change or those of a neighbouring country but also its exorbitant costs which necessitates a 30% price hike in tap water.

Desalination is however more than just that. It presents opportunities to those in the right industries providing products, services and training. On the flip side, it also presents challenges in terms of costs, energy needs and environmental conservation. Meanwhile, advances in technology hold the promise of improving desalination many fold in the future.

Join water educator, Chen Ko, for an action packed one-day workshop focused on the opportunities and challenges in seawater desalination.

  1. The morning will kick off with a classroom discussion of the technologies, equipment and issues in desalination.

  2. Chen Ko is a firm believer of blending theory and practice so after lunch, the participants will get to visit a real life seawater desalination plant (Tuaspring) to experience for themselves just how everything works together.

  3. The workshop will close off with a debrief of the day's activities, especially touching on the learning points for all participants.

Participants are guaranteed to walk away with a deeper understanding of what desalination is all about and how it can fit into your work.
