2018 MWC Technical Summit, Manila Water Company
Dr. Rex Demafelis, an awardee of the 2015 MWF Prize for Engineering Excellence, was one of the resource speakers for the 2018 Technical Summit of the Manila Water Company. There, he discussed “water footprint”, a concept introduced by Hoekstra et. al. that measures the impact of products and activities to water scarcity and pollution.
During the talk, Dr. Rex also shared ways on how Manila Water can do a Water Footprint Assessment to lessen the company’s possible environmental impact and to ensure a more sustainable water use.
