Join us on Wednesday, April 20 to hear Erik Fyrwald, Chairman and CEO of Nalco Company speak on "Water Optimization - Supporting Economic and Environmental Competitiveness".
Water quality and shortage issues have become top priority in many countries, including fast growing industrial economies like China, India, the Middle East and Africa. To preserve fresh water supplies for agariculture and domestic consumption, companies must operate with far less water and ensure that any effluent meets quality standards. Erik Fyrwald will discuss how companies are doing this more and more by setting water reduction goals and using "best practice" technologies and services to reduce water consumption in a way that also saves costs - environmental and economic sustainability.
J. Erik Fyrwald joined Nalco as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer in February 2008 following a 27-year career at DuPont. From 2003 to 2008 Mr. Fyrwald served as Group Vice President of the Agriculture and Nutrition division of DuPont. Mr. Fyrwald attended the University of Delaware, where he received a B.S. degree in chemical engineering in 1981. He also completed the Advanced Management Program at Harvard Business School.
