Learn About Pipe Rehabilitation in Mexico, Getting Involved in LIFT, and Resource Recovery in WEF Webcasts

Sponsor eShowcase: Addressing Mexico City’s AC Potable Water Pipes through Rehabilitation

3M (St. Paul, Minn.) sponsors this eShowcase to highlight its services and products and to interact in real-time with participants. Learn how the utility in Mexico City’s district of Iztapalapa and its contractors rehabilitated some priority drinking-water pipelines that were leaking. Deterioration of the 50- to 80-years-old pipes, composed of a mix of asbestos-cement and cast iron, led to service interruptions for the district’s 1.8 million residents. Participate in this webcast to find out how the project was completed and water service was restored in less than 8 hours.

LIFT: Getting Involved 101: Featuring a Biosolids-to-Energy Project Example

Get more involved in innovation and new technology. Learn about opportunities to engage in Leaders Innovation Forum for Technology (LIFT), a Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.)/ Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF; Alexandria, Va.) program to accelerate innovation into practice. Speakers will highlight results from a recently completed LIFT biosolids-to-energy project, Genifuel Hydrothermal Processing Bench Scale Technology Evaluation, as one example of engagement and collaboration. Participants in the webcast also will discuss various programs, tools, and opportunities available through LIFT, such as the LIFT working group, Technology Scans, test bed network, WEF Member Association toolbox, and collaborative research and development projects.

Creative Solutions for the Recovery of Commodities from Wastewater

The latest Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF; Alexandria, Va.) research on recovering commodities from water resource recovery facilities will be featured in this webcast. While nutrients, energy, water, and biosolids are established resources that can be recovered from wastewater, many other valuable products also can be extracted. Participants will learn about these other commodities, which include carbon-based products, bioplastic, bioisoprene, plasmids, and rare earth elements.

May 25, 1–3 p.m. (EST)
