One of the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities’ brightest PhD candidates has won a travel grant to attend the Singapore Scientific Conference in September.
Elisabet Andres Garcia, a researcher with Fit-for-purpose water production (Project C1.3), was given the Distinguished Award by Singapore’s Agency for Science, Technology and Research for her entry titled ‘Decentralised grey-water treatment system based on electrochemical oxidation’.
Her current research aims to generate a new strategy for water management in cities, in a more efficient way, in order to deal with the pressure impacting this resource in the coming years. This involves the development of a novel decentralised water treatment system, based on electrochemical oxidation, capable to recover the grey-water in situ for fit-for-purpose water production.
The travel grant will help support travelling expenses to Singapore to
attend the 2015 Singapore Scientific Conference, which will be held
from 16 to 17 September 2015.
