PUB and NEDO sign wastewater R&D letter of intent

Singapore’s national water agency, PUB, and the New Energy & Industrial Technology Development Organisation (NEDO) of Japan signed a letter of intent on 15 November 2010 to collaborate on research and development projects in the area of used water treatment.

Under this agreement, both agencies will collaborate jointly on projects to enhance the quality of used water as well as to produce industrial-grade water. The tender for the projects has been called and work is expected to start in January 2011.

The letter of intent was signed by PUB chief executive Khoo Teng Chye and NEDO president Takefumi Fukumizu, who was in Singapore for a two-day official visit. NEDO is Japan’s largest public management organisation promoting research and development as well as the deployment of industrial, energy and environmental technologies.
