On Nov. 14th, LIFT launched a pilot for a new Technology Scan program seeking submissions from innovative technology solution providers that can be applied in the water quality industry. Two technology types are included in the pilot with a goal of accelerating adoption by facility owners, the consulting community, and venture capitalists. Under the program, WERF will conduct independent technology evaluations to help speed adoption. Applications are due no later than 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 23, 2014.
The LIFT Technology Scan pilot involves two areas for evaluation to create the most optimal platform for technology providers to introduce their emerging, pre-commercial, and newly commercialized technologies to funders, advisors, and end users. The pilot areas are:
- Digestion Enhancements
- Thickening and Dewatering Enhancements
