While the fever of the first two days have subsided a little, there are still plenty to look forward to. One key highlight for Black & Veatch professionals, as well as some university post-graduate students, this year, is the Dialogue Session with Dr James Barnard. And we would like to invite you to be a part of the dialogue.
Dr James Barnard, laureate of the 2011 Lee Kuan Yew Water Prize, is a world renowned innovator and technologist in the water industry. He has spent his career researching, developing and improving processes for treating water and wastewater in a more efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly manner. Known also as the ‘Father of BNR’, he is also one of the world’s most inspiring engineers of this age that aspiring water professionals can hope to meet and hear from.
Dr Barnard will be hosting a meet-and-greet session from 10.15am to 10.45am today at the Black & Veatch booth (P22) at the Water Expo, level B2. Join us as he shares his experience being at the forefront of developing sustainable water solutions and the challenges he faced in unlocking new solutions for the industry since the 1970s. There will be an interactive Q&A session after where you can ask and learn about trends and issues that will guide the future of water engineers in the next ten years.
On the same track, if you’re keen to find out more about sustainable solutions, head down to the Water Convention Workshop titled ‘Composting Provides a Sustainable Solution to the Biosolids Issues in Shenyang, China’ today, from 11:15 am to 11:30 am, at Heliconia Room 3501A, level 3. The presentation will be made by Alan Man, Vice President and Managing Director of Black & Veatch’s North Asia Pacific water business.
Looking forward to the end of the day at the newly opened Gardens by the Bay? We are too, and we’re sure the Closing Ceremony will be a sight to behold. Let’s celebrate the end of an eventful week among beautiful flora and fauna – truly the hallmark of Singapore as a City in a Garden.
We’ll see you there.
