SINGAPORE - Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that are keen on developing water treatment solutions can tap on a grant offered by Spring Singapore and national water agency PUB.

The two government agencies are launching their second grant call for SMEs to come up with innovative water technologies that can be applied in Singapore and abroad, they said in a joint press release on Sunday.

This comes after their first grant call, launched in 2012 and awarded last year, resulted in $2.5 million being give out to develop used water treatment technologies.

"This grant call builds on the success of the first grant call, and extends the scope beyond used water treatment technologies to encompass all areas of the water loop," the agencies said.
