Technology Development & Commercialization

Testing, Verification, Certification

Contact us if you are interested in performance measurement of your water or wastewater technology. We work with organizations such as VerifiGlobal, GLOBE Performance Solutions, NSF, and the Ontario Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks, to help our clients and partners get the verifications and certifications they need.


The CAWT’s analytical laboratory is accredited by the Canadian Association for Laboratory Accreditation for the ISO/IEC 17025 standard with a full range of parameters for water and wastewater analyses.

The CAWT has passed the VerifiGlobal Peer Assessment (ISO/IEC 17020:2012 Conformity Assessment in the scope of ISO 14034:2016 Environmental Management – ETV.)


Since 2004 we have helped companies expand their product lines, obtain patents, gain market entry, identify solutions, and optimize their technologies. We can help you achieve your goals too.


There are many funding opportunities available that your project may qualify for. The CAWT has a long history of successfully securing applied research funding from a number of funding organizations. All funding opportunities available to you will be discussed during introductory meetings.

In addition, you may qualify for tax credits through the federal government Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) Tax Incentive Program.


How do I begin?

Contact us to get started. We’ll set up a consultation meeting and create your custom project plan. Together we will get your technology to the next level.

How much will my project or testing cost?

Fees vary depending on project type and length. Contact us for more information.

Is there funding available?

We have several programs in place to help reduce the costs of projects. Funding options can be explored during the initial consultation. Contact us to learn more about our funders and funding opportunities.

What happens with the intellectual property (IP) when my project is complete?

For the vast majority of projects, the industry partner remains the sole owner of the IP. Intellectual property allocation is discussed during the initial consultation and agreed upon before the project begins.

Who will be working on my project?

The CAWT has a core staff of project managers, scientists, technologists, and technicians. Our project managers and scientists will lead the project from start to finish. Occasionally students will assist our research team (student participation can be a requirement for certain types of funding). All researchers sign non-disclosure agreements.
