[Extract] "This is either Incredibly Brave or Fantastically Stupid!" - Piers Clark - Isle Utilities - Trial Reservoir (don't) Waste Water!

    • Natural Sciences

Piers Clark is the Chairman and Founder of Isle Utilities. Isle aims to bring new technologies to life by connecting expertise, investment, and inspired ideas across the globe. 



I remember my first pilot as a young water professional. We were trying to enhance biogas production in a midsized wastewater treatment plant. To this date, I can't say if we failed. Because we indeed increased production, but yet probably not enough for the technology to be adopted. And, in fact, it wasn't. 



In the next years of my career, I have again been involved in many pilots. Some of them were successful enough to take me abroad to conferences and present the results, but again, I must be really bad or doomed, but none of them ever became a full scale.



And I honestly never took a step back to figure out what was wrong with piloting. I can just tell it's hard by experience, but also because so many of the about one hundred guests that appeared on that microphone shared similar stories.



So, when I asked Sivan Zamir, by Season 5 Episode 15, what was the most exciting project she ever got involved in, and she answered that:



I had to think, gosh, that's so brilliant, simple, and desperately needed in this industry; I must find out more. And trust me, not only will we all find out more together with Piers in just a minute, but I promise you will also have a good time listening to how he colorfully deploys the story! 



Are you ready to turn piloting on its head? Well, while you buckle up, let me remind you that if you like what you hear, you can help me up tremendously by sharing that content around you. 



Please tell your friends, colleagues, or LinkedIn network what you found inspiring in what Piers shares today, and if you don't like what you hear, please reach out to me and tell me what I should be doing differently or better. Come on, do it, and I'll meet you on the other side. 



How will the Trial Reservoir  Change Piloting Forever and For Good?
