When you turn the faucet on the tap in some countries today, you may not find a steady stream of crystal-clear water. More likely, you’ll see sludge oozing out. This problem looks set to become more commonplace with world populations booming and clean water sources on the decline due to irresponsible water management. As such, how then can countries survive in the not-too-distant future as clean water resources continue to become more scarce?
This and other similar questions were tackled at the Young Water Talents Symposium 2012, held at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.
More than 30 of the brightest minds from various tertiary education institutions around the world came together to discuss and suggest solutions to the myriad challenges plaguing the world’s water supplies. Also present were various guest speakers from the industry who gave a snapshot of the current world situation and painted a bleak future if water treatment technologies are not implemented more vigourously.
