The Leaders Innovation Forum for Technology (LIFT) is seeking submissions for innovative technological solutions that can be applied in the water quality sector. LIFT, a Water Environment Federation (Alexandria, Va.) and Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF; Alexandria, Va.) initiative, focuses on accelerating the use of innovative practices in wastewater treatment.

Through the LIFT Technology Scan and Assessment program, technology providers are offered a platform to introduce their emerging, pre-commercial, and newly commercialized technologies to funders, advisors, and end users. LIFT Technology Scan submissions must be applicable to municipal and industrial stormwater and wastewater collection and treatment operations in developed nations. The priority topic areas for technologies include, but are not limited to

  • biosolids utilization,
  • energy capture/production,
  • conveyance systems condition assessment and renewal,
  • resource recovery,
  • nutrient removal,
  • water reuse, and
  • green infrastructure and stormwater best management practices.

LIFT Technology Scans involve identification and evaluation of innovative technologies and a review of inventor’s claims. Selected technology providers are invited to present to the LIFT audiences that are appropriate to their technology readiness levels in order to garner interest in early adoption of the technology.

Technology Scan applications are due on Sept. 12, no later than 5 p.m. EDT. For more information see a complete description of the program and application instructions or contact Jeff Moeller, WERF director of Water Technologies, at, or Ravi George, WERF Technology and Innovation manager, at
