"Preserving our Valuable Water Resource – Preventive and Proactive"
Speaker: Mr Antoine Mussillon
Managing Director, Veolia Water (South China) Limited
Water is a limited vital natural resource that is essential to our daily living and also heavily relied on by all businesses.  Seventy per cent of the earth surface is covered by water, but for it to continue to be a reliable supply for future growth, it must be available to local populations in sufficient quantity and quality, and without compromising local ecosystems.
Unfortunately, this is not the case in most of the world, as water is unevenly distributed among the world’s population.  Population growth, urbanisation and changing lifestyle are now putting pressure and competition on water resources.  Sustainable water management is a pressing need for many developed and developing economies to prepare for tomorrow’s need.
Water management has a direct impact on countries and company’s economic performance and growth. Proactive water management is therefore vital.  Veolia Environnement is going to share an overview of the situation and what we could do to reduce our water footprint.
"Application of Genetic Algorithm for On-line Optimisation of Pumping Schedules"
Speakers:  Mr H S Wong, Assistant Director / Mechanical & Electrical
                     Mr Charles Y Y Law, Electrical Engineer
Water Supplies Department, the HKSAR Government
As energy is needed for the supply of water to customers, the efficient use of this resource is a common concern of the water industry. The Water Supplies Department of the HKSAR Government has developed an optimisation methodology for on-line pump scheduling as one of its energy management opportunities. Using the experience of putting the new initiative on trial in a pilot scheme, the speakers will share with our members how engineers of different generations can join hands to bring about changes to the way we used to deliver services and keep the momentum of energy saving rolling.
