    Smart Water: New Technologies to Conserve Natural Resources
    J. Erik Fyrwald, (pictured) Chemical Engineer

    The impending global water crisis is just starting to make headlines. The World Bank reports that 80 countries are experiencing water shortages and more than 2 billion people have limited access to clean water and sanitation. Erik Fyrwald, Chairman and CEO of Nalco and a chemical engineer, will put the global water situation into an understandable context and discuss how new and emerging smart technologies can reduce water use. He will also discuss the connection between water and energy consumption, and how effective water treatment saves water, improves energy efficiency, and minimizes consumption of other natural resources.

    The United Nations declared 2011 the International Year of Chemistry to bring awareness to how chemistry helps achieve economic, environmental and health goals of the modern world. This lecture is part of the International Year of Chemistry Lecture Series co-sponsored by Rice University's Glasscock School of Continuing Studies and the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
