Invitation to PUB’s Grant Call Information Session on 12 Dec 2019
INVITATION TO PUB’S GRANT CALL INFORMATION SESSION ON 12 DEC 2019
PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency, launched a Directed Request for Proposals (RFPs) on 2 Dec 2019 under the Competitive Research Programme (Water) to invite researchers and industries to develop solutions on the topic of “Low-energy Low-chemical Pre/Post-Treatment for Seawater Desalination”.
2 Energy efficiency for desalination has been a key research topic for Singapore. So far, significant research efforts have been directed to improve the main desalting step. To complement these ongoing efforts, pre-/post-treatment of desalination is recognised as a potential area for improvement and warrants further investigation. This Directed RFP 1901 hence solicits low-energy and low-chemical solutions for A) pre-treatment processes, and/or B) post-treatment processes (particularly boron removal) for seawater desalination. Proposed solutions related to main desalting step as an alternative to the existing (commercial) SWRO, which can improve and/or optimise the overall desalination treatment process, will also be considered in this RFP. More details on the RFP can be found in the Fact Sheet as attached in Annex A.
3 We are pleased to invite you to the PUB Grant Call Information Session on 12 Dec 2019, 9.30am – 12.00pm. This session will provide more information on the Directed RFP and you will get a chance to clarify specific queries.
