PUB and SPRING launch grant call

SPRING Singapore (SPRING) and PUB, Singapore's National Water Agency, through the Environment and Water Industry Programme Office (EWI), are jointly launching an inaugural grant call for Singapore enterprises to develop innovative water treatment technologies.

This is the first grant call for water technologies that is targeted at SMEs. While Singapore SMEs have come up with innovative water technologies in recent years, this grant call aims to foster further innovation in SMEs in the area of used water research and development. At the same time, it allows PUB to leverage the private sector's experience, expertise and network to develop the next generation of used water treatment technologies to meet Singapore's water challenges and support the growth of the water industry.

Projects leading to the development of innovative used water treatment technologies will be funded under SPRING's Technology Innovation Programme (TIP) and the Technology Enterprise Commercialisation Scheme (TECS) (Annex A).

For this first grant call, PUB is offering awardees the opportunity to test bed their technologies alongside existing treatment processes in PUB's facilities.

This allows companies to work with actual used water flows collected from homes and industries. Through this experience, awardees will also be able to build up their track record, thereby increasing the marketability of their products.
