Forty student teams participated in the Singapore Junior Water Prize Competition 2017, which was held at Ngee Ann Polytechnic in May 2017. Among the participants was a trio of our Chemical Engineering students, whose project, ‘Phototrophic Biofilm Reactor: Innovative Recirculating Aquaculture System for Sustainable Fish Farming’, clinched the Merit prize. This water treatment unit, that is used to raise freshwater tilapia fingerlings, features an innovative reactor to grow phototrophic biofilms, which can be processed and then reused as fish feed. Brilliant work team! The team’s Mentor was Dr. Tang Wanling.
Other participating institutions included NYP, SP, ITEs, and NUS High School.
