ResinTech, Inc. is pleased to announce its Senior Technical Director, Peter Meyers, is the 2018 recipient of the IWC Merit award. The International Water Conference® presents the Annual Merit Award to honor an inspiring individual in the field of industrial water technology — a person who has continually demonstrated outstanding leadership and made significant contributions to water-related technology or the advancement of its application.
IWC Award Presenter, Trisha Scroggin from Burns & McDonnell, introduced the award by saying, “Peter Meyers has presented papers or discussions over twenty-one times over thirty years here at the IWC, and with every single paper or presentation he pushes passion and excellence.”
Mr. Meyers took the opportunity to emphasize the importance of engaging the next generation in improving water technologies, “Change is going to happen whether we want it to or not. Change has to happen to the IWC, and I hope we stay relevant.” Meyers continued, “We can’t keep doing the same thing over and over. We have to try new things, and if those new things don’t work, we have to put them aside and try something else.”
ResinTech CEO, Jeffrey Gottlieb summarized the feelings of Peter’s coworkers and industry peers, “We are incredibly proud of Peter for his many significant contributions to the ion exchange industry, the field of water treatment and ResinTech over his impressive career. His long list of lectures and white papers demonstrate his commitment to inspiring the next generation of water technology engineers.”
