Water Council Establishes ICE Institute Focused On Technology

The Water Council, headquartered in Milwaukee, WI, launched a groundbreaking commercialization initiative that will match manufacturers, utilities and the agricultural industry with promising water and water-related technology research and innovations for advancement into the marketplace.

The ICE (Innovation Commercialization Exchange) Institute serves as a technology-vetting program, addressing issues across a wide range of industries, by providing :

  • Access to a broad spectrum of innovations within federal and university research labs.
  • A nationwide scouting team to identify emerging technologies and processes.
  • A detailed database and clearinghouse of pre-screened innovations powered by the Global Water Port, a web-based research and data dashboard, allowing members to evaluate options applicable to their specific need.
  • Product matching and development teams to connect users to promising technologies to advance to market.

Leading the initiative is David Garman, Ph.D., the new chief technology officer for The Water Council, who also continues his role as the associate vice chancellor for water technology, research, and development for the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
