ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The Leaders Innovation Forum for Technology (LIFT) is now seeking submissions from innovative technology providers for solutions that can be applied in the water quality industry, according to a press release.

Through the LIFT Technology Scan and Assessment program, technology providers are offered an optimal platform to introduce their emerging, pre-commercial, and newly commercialized technologies to funders, advisors and end-users, stated the release.

LIFT Technology Scan submissions must be applicable to municipal and industrial stormwater and wastewater collection and treatment operations in developed nations such as the U.S. 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
  • Green Infrastructure and Stormwater BMPs

LIFT Technology Scans involve identification and evaluation of innovative technologies for their readiness level and review of inventor’s claims.

Selected vendors/inventors will be invited to present their ideas to Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF) subscribers, which are appropriate to their technology readiness level, to garner interest in early adoption, noted the release.

WERF will help develop and manage independent, peer-reviewed technology evaluations of selected technologies.
