GE’s Jeff Peeters was recently appointed as a member of the Water Environment Research Foundation’s (WERF) and the Water Environment Federation’s (WEF) LIFT Program Steering Committee. LIFT is a WERF-WEF program that aims to accelerate the adoption of new and innovative technologies in the wastewater sector by engaging the entire water sector in all phases of the innovation process and to create such a culture where all water partners advance and implement new technology.
The LIFT Steering Committee consists of eight individuals representing municipal and industrial facility owners, consulting engineers, academia and industry and technology providers. The committee includes liaisons to federal agencies, the WERF Research Council and designated WEF committees.
As a member of the LIFT Steering Committee, Peeters will serve as an adviser to provide oversight and guidance to the program and its activities to help ensure it successfully achieves its goals and, ultimately, serves the water industry at a strategic level.
