CORK, IRELAND, May 9, 2016 -- A keynote address from NASA chief scientist Dennis Bushnell will be one of the highlights at BlueTech Forum, which is being held in the US city of San Francisco on June 1, 2016. The high level event also features presentations by 12 of the water industry’s most innovative technology companies and roundtable briefings hosted by market sector experts.

BlueTech Research chief executive Paul O’Callaghan said, “The theme of this year’s BlueTech Forum -- insights to future-proof your water strategy -- has captured the imagination of delegates.

“Innovators are the future of water and we have hand-picked exciting technology companies that represent the widest possible spectrum of water technology innovation. Delegates will enjoy very practical presentations of case studies showing how these technologies are already working and are ready for much wider application.”

Glen Daigger, Professor of Engineering Practice at the University of Michigan and a consultant for O2 Environmental TAG will be hosting a water technology round table on nutrient recovery, one of twelve BlueTech Forum briefings.

He said, “If you want to make a difference in terms of getting new ideas into routine use, there is a whole body of knowledge that you need and getting engaged with a group like this is one of the best ways to learn.”

Investors attending BlueTech Forum, a BlueTech Research event, will hear about the kinds of technologies they need to future-proof their technology portfolios. The technology companies presenting case studies on the day include:
