AWT Panel Webinar: Industrial Water Treatment Industry Outlook, Part II

Thursday, December 3, 2020, 11:00 am ET

In late July 2020, AWT conducted a follow-up survey of AWT members on the financial impact of the pandemic on their companies. The results were mixed, but on the whole, they were relatively positive. Some highlights include:

  • 76% of companies anticipate bad debt for 2020 to be less than 10%.
  • 34% of companies anticipate business being up over last year.
  • Another 32% of members anticipate business to be down less than 10%.
  • 70% of members do not anticipate layoffs this year and an additional 17% of members anticipate staff growth this year.
  • 56% of companies applied for and received PPP or other government funds. 49% of those companies will ask for forgiveness of the funds.
  • 79% of members see opportunities for growth in the current climate. This is up from 71% in April/May.

Join us for an interactive panel discussion on December 3 at 11:00 am ET where our panelists will provide an update on the current outlook for the industrial water treatment industry. Our panelists will share their recent experiences and what they think the future holds. Discussion topics include:

  • What short-term opportunities has your company been able to take advantage of during the pandemic?
  • What is different and the same when it comes to servicing accounts in today’s environment?
  • How has business been in 2020 and what do you foresee for 2021?
  • What long-term market diversification opportunities do you see for your company?
  • What other business opportunities do you see in today’s environment?

AWT Webinar: Stabilized Chlorine for Cooling Tower Applications

Thursday, December 10, 2020, 11:00 am ET

Operation of cooling towers with high cycles of concentration is problematic when using oxidizing biocides. Particularly with concerns about pathogenic organisms such as Legionella, the importance of microbial control in cooling towers is paramount, both for public safety as well as heat transfer efficiency. Stabilized chlorine has shown advantages in high-demand environments where oxidizing biocides may be quickly depleted. Join us for a webinar on December 10 at 11:00 am ET where Ellen Meyer, Sigura, will discuss the chemistry of stabilized chlorine and its efficacy against microorganisms. Practical information will also be provided.
