Oregon Student Wins United States Stockholm Junior Water Prize, Will Participate In International Competition

Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), a leading global water technology company focused on addressing the world’s most challenging water issues, congratulates Anirudh Jain of Portland, Oregon on his selection as the 2013 winner of the United States Stockholm Junior Water Prize (SJWP) – the world’s most prestigious youth award for water-related science and technology projects.

Jain’s project, “Use of Sulfidation as a Novel Method for Reducing the Toxicity of Silver Nanoparticle Pollution,” examined use of sulfidation as a viable approach to reduce the toxicity of silver nanoparticle pollution during wastewater treatment. The project received top honors out of the 48 state entries at the national competition held in Portland, Oregon on June 14 – 15. In September, Jain will represent the United States at the International Stockholm Junior Water Prize competition in Stockholm, Sweden, where he will compete with 30 other students from around the world for the honor.

In addition, Jain will receive a $10,000 scholarship, the opportunity to present his research to water quality professionals at the Water Environment Federation’s (WEF) 86th annual technical exhibition and conference in October, and his school will receive a $1,000 grant toward enhancing water science education. This year, SJWP has increased the scholarship amount awarded to the U.S. national winner to $10,000 to help elevate the importance of water research and education to the nation’s audience of high school students.

Xylem has been a sponsor of the Stockholm Junior Water Prize for the past 15 years and was a leading voice in its creation. Through its corporate citizenship and social investment program, Xylem Watermark, Xylem is working to make a sustainable mark in the world by providing safe water, sanitation and hygiene education to children and families in need, and to help people affected by disasters and other emergencies. The program also works to bring innovative solutions to these issues around the world, and supporting the Stockholm Junior Water Prize is an important part of those efforts.
