BIOGRAPHY

As a project lead at EWTCOI, Gerard Tee has worked on multiple industry projects and has experience in the design and development of various kinds of water systems, such as water mineralisation system; air-conditioning condensate to water purification system; as well as closed-loop laundry wastewater recycling system, closed-loop stepwise food process water treatment and reuse system, and closed-loop food wastewater & solid recovery system.

Prior to joining EWTCOI, Gerard was a project lead at Hyflux. His past projects include Polymeric Membrane R&D and Production Scale Fabrications, Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) Skid Design and Fabrication, Treatment of Industrial Wastewater Using MBR Pilot Plant Design, Commissioning and Performance Test at Singapore, China, Malaysia sites, and Movable Containerise System of Ground Water Treatment System Development at Indonesia site. 

Gerard has a Master’s of Science in Chemical Engineering from the National University of Singapore.
