During Water Week 2014, Danfoss joined other manufacturers, industry associations and non-profit organizations on Capitol Hill to discuss perspectives and solutions as well as challenges and opportunities in the U.S. water and wastewater sectors.

Lisa Tryson, director of corporate communications and public relations at Danfoss, noted that the treatment of water and wastewater is the third-largest consumer of energy in the United States, making policy, regulation and financing important efforts in the deployment of energy efficient technologies.

Danfoss showcased its high-efficiency variable frequency drive technology as a viable solution for energy-intensive water and wastewater treatment processes. The one-day Water Infrastructure & Innovation Expo was hosted by Water Environment Federation (WEF) as part of the National Water Policy Forum & Fly-in, Water Week’s anchor event hosted by The National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA), WEF and Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF).

Held in the Rayburn House Office Building, the expo was attended by members of Congress and congressional staff, general managers and plant managers of waste and clean water facilities, water agencies, federal agency employees, and the public.

The National Water Policy Forum & Fly-in gathered water and wastewater professionals from around the country and members of Congress and other federal regulators to share perspectives on federal clean water policy. The event set the stage for the expo’s strategic and technical insights.
