No. Our research team can carry out testing, demonstrations, monitoring, and other projects off-site. Our project history includes working in several countries, across Ontario, and in Canada’s Arctic.


faq_smellYou work in wastewater research, does your facility smell?

Sometimes it does. There are days when we wish we were working in a bakery, movie theatre, or some other sort of pleasant-smelling workplace. But we’re devoted to helping find and improve alternative wastewater treatment technologies, so we learn to ignore the occasional stink.
