SAN MATEO, Calif., Jan. 12, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SDForum, Silicon Valley's leading source of information and education in the technology community, is pleased to announce the delegation of Australian companies that will exhibit at the "The Global Water Crisis: Challenges and Opportunities for Clean Energy" conference to be held on Tuesday, January 25, 2011 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. at AMD Commons Auditorium in Sunnyvale, CA.

This conference is brought to you in partnership with Australia as part of the 'G'day USA – Australia Week 2011 program'. The G'day USA Committee is pleased to partner with SDForum to deliver this comprehensive event that brings together Australian as well as other global thought leaders sharing their knowledge about the water crisis.

Australian Consul-General in San Francisco Nigel Warren said, "This is the most diverse and largest delegation of Australian water companies we have ever brought to the United States as part of the G'day USA – Australia Week annual program. I am pleased to present to you the 13 Australian companies attending the SD Forum Water event and hope that you have the opportunity to meet with them and start to develop a relationship for collaboration and success."

Australian delegation companies include:

Baleen Filters
BIO-GILL Environmental Pty Ltd
Detection Services Pty Ltd.
F Cubed
Nexus eWater Pty Ltd.
One Water Naturally Pty Ltd.
Perfectflow Technology Pty Ltd.
Protean Energy Limited
Savewater Alliance!
Sinclair Knight Merz Pty Ltd.
STAR Water Solutions
UGL Infrastructure
Windesal Ltd.

John West, CEO of BIO-GILL Environmental Pty Ltd, said: "Traditionally Australia has been a very dry continent and has had to deal with drought and water shortages throughout its modern day development. New technologies, like the BIO-GILL system, have now come to the fore to reuse wastewater on a large scale rather than disposing this valuable resource. Evidence of the water savings that can be made from new technology comes from Sydney which now uses about the same amount of water it did in the early 70's despite an increase in population of around 1.3 million people."
