Environmental management technology firm Envirosuite has been shortlisted in Singapore PUB’s Global Innovation Challenge (GIC). Out of 104 applicants, the firm has been selected in the “Seamless Coagulation” category.

PUB is the national water agency that manages Singapore’s water supply, water catchment and used water. The Southeast Asian country uses 430 million gallons of water every day.

As PUB’s literature explains, the GIC seeks to accelerate the discovery and adoption of digital solutions and smart technologies to improve operational excellence and meet future water needs.

Envirosuite’s submission to the GIC was focused on solving the following challenge: how might we determine the required coagulant dosage in water treatment processes using new means that are faster, connected, and automatic?

Envirosuite says its EVS Water solution offers insights to help optimise plant operational performance, based on modelling integrated with machine learning. The solution combines the acquired AqMB IP for the modelled effects of biological and other processes on chemical and energy inputs, with EVS’s exclusively licenced SeweX algorithms to monitor and prolong the operational life of water collection and distribution infrastructure. The offering “aims to significantly improve the economics and environmental outcomes for water asset operators.”

“We aim to play an increasingly important role for water asset operators around the world who are looking to solve problems relating to water supply, quality and scarcity via digital transformation,” says the firm. “Globally we have identified as many as 25,000 applicable sites which could benefit from the technology.”

Founded in Australia, Envirosuite says it “supports the leading operators in airports, cities, construction, mining, heavy industry, waste and water to realise the full potential of their assets through the power of environmental intelligence.”
